Humanities – Minor


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs

The humanities minor is a program of study that provides students with an opportunity to study the humanities through a discipline-based, interdisciplinary, or topically focused approach. Discipline-based options include literature, history, Spanish, and German; minors in twentieth-century studies, American studies, and Western studies are examples of interdisciplinary minors; and studies in democracy, peace studies, and women’s studies are potential topical minors. The program consists of 18 credits of approved humanities coursework. Of these 18 credits, a minimum of 12 credits of minor coursework must be completed in addition to any courses (required courses or program electives) included in the major curriculum. The capstone course in the program is HU 498 Directed Study in the Humanities. In addition to submitting a formal paper, qualified candidates for the humanities minor will be invited to summarize their research in an oral report to the department faculty.

Interested students should apply to minor program early in their academic career, usually by the fifth semester of college work, but no later than the end of the drop/add period of the first semester of their last year of didactic work. According to the University policy, a student must have the approval of his/her academic advisor in order to apply for a minor. No more than 6 credits may be transferred from another institution. The department chair will determine transferability.
