The Humanities major is an interdisciplinary major that focuses on exploring the human condition through the ideas, artistic movements, religions, ideologies, and intellectual structures that humans use, and have used, to understand and give meaning to their world. At the heart of this endeavor is the commitment to use multiple disciplinary perspectives from the humanities to understand ideas across multiple eras, regions, and cultures.

Students in this major will gain a strong foundation in critical thinking; reading and interpretive skills; comparative study; and effective writing in several disciplines. This major prepares students for any number of careers in the humanities, publishing, writing, journalism, government and diplomatic service, and also effectively prepares them for graduate study in law, journalism, English, History, Religious Studies, Seminary, Government and Diplomacy, Cultural Studies and Humanities.
