The humanities program is an appropriate choice for students seeking educational development or a focus on interdisciplinary knowledge. Students receive individual and personalized attention from their advisor throughout the program as they self-design the degree around their unique interests and personal goals. It offers broad benefits for career advancement; civic and cultural participation; preparation for law school, seminary or a Ph.D. program; personal enhancement; critical thinking; and understanding the human heritage. Many students are employed in teaching careers, as well as positions in finance, marketing research and writing.
