Humanities, Visual and Performing Arts Track, BA

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

The Humanities degree is designed for self-motivated students who desire a broad arts and sciences degree with an interdisciplinary perspective. Instead of pursuing a traditional major, the Humanities student creates, with the consent of a faculty advisor, an individualized plan of study with an interdisciplinary theme, period, set of problems, specialization, or perspective unavailable through the combining of a traditional major and minor.

Humanities students must select one of two tracks: General Studies emphasis, Visual and Performing Arts. The Bachelor’s Accelerated Completion program also offers an online Humanities major using the General Studies track. Each track has its own degree requirements, beyond those required of all Humanities students. No minor is required for the Humanities degree. The total credit hours required for a B.A. in Humanities is 120.
