Humanities major (75 credits)

Courses in two or more of the following areas: communication studies, French, German, humanities, Latin, linguistics, literature/English, modern languages, philosophy, religious studies, Spanish, or writing. The emphasis in the major is determined with the help of an advisor. Possible emphases include communications, modern languages, and philosophy/religion/mythology

at least five (5) courses total in each of two areas:

at least four (4) of the five courses must be upper-division courses, for a minimum of 12 credits upper-division per block/area;

other Humanities areas may be included in the plan, in addition to the two blocks of courses;

first-year language courses will not count in the major.

Required: 36 upper-division credits, including HUM 450 Senior Portfolio (1)


Choose your advisor according to the areas your degree will focus on; if your plan includes primarily Speech Communication and Spanish, for example, ask the faculty advisor for that area for help (list found here). If you want help identifying an appropriate faculty member, see the division administrative program assistant located in HSS 313.
