Offering a B. A. in Humanities, the Humanities Program is intended primarily for the student who desires the broadening experience of liberal arts study across a variety of disciplines, supported by a solid grounding in economics, business and technology.
The Bachelor of Arts Degree in the Humanities explores the nature of the human condition. Through the study of classic works in philosophy, religion, literature, history, and the visual and performing arts, students reach for increased understanding of the fundamental questions of human life such as: Who am I? What is the nature of God? What is my community? What does it mean to create? In the disciplined encounter with great works of the human spirit, students develop skills in critical thinking; in reading, writing, and speaking; in carrying out research; and in using information technology. As a whole, the program builds intellectual curiosity, open-mindedness, cultural awareness, and creativity.
A Humanities degree provides students with a background suitable for future studies in law, business, and the traditional humanistic disciplines (i.e.. philosophy, religion, history, literature and the arts). Its emphasis on cultural knowledge, critical thinking, and communication skills also makes it perfect for students seeking career advancement or entry-level positions in business management, advertising, public relations, journalism, publishing, and public administration. This program is also designed to meet the needs of working adults and seniors who are pursuing the goal of lifelong learning.
