Humanities Minor

The minor in the humanities exposes undergraduate students to diverse examples of human thought and culture and to the interdisciplinary methods and theories used in humanities scholarship. Its premise is that studying an assortment of humanities topics from a wide range of perspectives complements the more closely focused coursework of any major, inside or outside the humanities.

Humanities minors get priority in registering for HUM classes during pre-registration periods.
