|Humanities courses expose students to major artistic, literary, and philosophical
works and familiarize them with the methods of inquiry used in the humanities disciplines.
Studies of the humanities enable students to understand, appreciate, examine, and
respond to intellectual, moral, and artistic traditions. Minors are particularly encouraged
to meet regularly with their designated Humanities mentor (assigned by the coordinator
of the Humanities program) to discuss values and skills acquired in the minor, how
courses overlap and differ within the minor, how they relate to the student’s major,
and how the skills and knowledge acquired in the minor can enhance opportunities as
a student prepares for graduate school and/or the job market.
