Humanities is a program devoted to the study, appreciation, and analysis of cultural traditions from an interdisciplinary perspective. The Bachelor of Arts in Humanities focuses on the arts (including literature, music, theatre, sculpture, painting, architecture, film) and ideas (philosophical trends, artistic movements, and religious traditions) by examining individual works and thinkers in their particular cultural and historical contexts. The program allows students to specialize in a particular period (such as classical antiquity, the medieval period, the Renaissance, and modernism) or in cultures of Asia, Africa, and the Americas.
