A minor is an optional component of a student’s degree that will be reflected on the student’s transcript. Minors are an excellent way for students to customize their learning experience and craft a degree program that is uniquely theirs. Students can even earn multiple minors to supplement a bachelor's degree. For example, students pursuing a degree in interpersonal communication might find that a minor in sociology is an excellent pairing, while a student pursuing a degree in public administration might add a minor in sustainability issues to help create a cleaner, greener future. And in some cases, employers offer bonuses or higher salaries to employees who have a foreign language minor.
The Humanities minor provides insight into the development of art and culture throughout history. The program offers an interdisciplinary approach to the study of art, literature, religion, philosophy, film and aesthetics from diverse human cultures. This program complements degrees in communication, art, history, philosophy, language and education.
A Humanities minor complements a range of majors in both the College of Liberal Arts and elsewhere in the university. Some of these are:
- Information Systems
- Political Science
- Public Administration
