Humanities

They said to go out and change the world, and I did. My prayer in the morning is ‘I’m reporting for duty.’ Siena taught me that.

  • About: Humanities

 

Do you love to read great literature, think lofty thoughts, study history and culture, but not want to limit yourself by majoring in just one discipline?

If your answer is 'Yes,' then the interdisciplinary Humanities major is just the thing for you.

Rather than concentrating in English, Communications, Spanish, history, philosophy, or religious studies, the Humanities major takes courses from all of these areas, as well as from the fine and performing arts.

This major is ideal for students planning to pursue graduate study in any of these areas. It also offers an excellent preparation for law school.
