The study of humanities offers students a broad, interdisciplinary understanding of humankind's cultural heritage. This study includes: history, literature, philosophy, religion, and the arts. The goal of this major is to provide an interdisciplinary understanding of ideas and forms of expression that exert a major influence on civilization. The humanities provide a broadly-based education for many careers.
The curriculum is intended to prepare students for advanced degrees at a baccalaureate institution. In addition it may also meet requirements for general education at both the two and four-year colleges and universities.
