Through an Undergraduate Humanities Program, you will obtain an extensive cultural and historical knowledge base, while developing a research, critical thinking, and persuasive communication skillset that will prepare you for numerous professional settings.
View culture and history through multiple perspectives, and gain distinctive insight into the greater global community. The specialized skills and concepts that you learn through the Creative Writing, English and History bachelor's degree programs are supplemented with examinations of the social and societal dynamics that influenced major cultural achievements throughout history.
All of the humanities majors will empower you to develop proper research methods, critical thinking strategies, and continuous refinement of writing, communication and presentation skills. With this highly-desirable skill set, you will be able to effectively translate classroom studies into your professional lives. Small class sizes, active mentorship from dedicated faculty and experience outside the classroom in internship settings effectively guide you in shaping your future career.
