Overview of programs for majors and minors
The department’s major programs build upon the liberal arts foundation of its GUR courses. Its B.A. Humanities degree program offers two concentrations, in the History of Culture, and in Religion and Culture. A third program, B.A. Humanities—Elementary Education, prepares students to teach humanities subjects in primary schools. The department offers three minor programs, in Humanities, in the Study of Religion, and a new minor in Arabic and Islamic Studies (in collaboration with the Department of Modern and Classical Languages).
The department administers the Student-Faculty Designed Major in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences. This program allows students, in consultation with appropriate faculty, to design a course of study in areas not available through existing departmental majors. Finally, the department cooperates with other departments in the East Asian Studies program.
