Humanities Degree Requirements

Humanities major (75 credits)

Courses in two or more of the following areas: communication studies, French, German, humanities, Latin, linguistics, literature/English, modern languages, philosophy, religious studies, Spanish, or writing. The emphasis in the major is determined with the help of an advisor. Possible emphases include communications, modern languages, and philosophy/religion/mythology

  • at least five (5) courses total in each of two areas:
  • at least four (4) of the five courses must be upper-division courses, for a minimum of 12 credits upper-division per block/area;
  • other Humanities areas may be included in the plan, in addition to the two blocks of courses;
  • first-year language courses will not count in the major.

Required: 36 upper-division credits, including HUM 450 Senior Portfolio (1)


Choose your advisor according to the areas your degree will focus on; if your plan includes primarily Speech Communication and Spanish, for example, ask a faculty member in one of those areas to advise you. If you want help identifying an appropriate faculty member, see the division administrative program assistant in HSS 313.

Humanities minor (15 credits)

Approved upper-division hours in humanities areas; maximum 6 credits of internship.
