Humanities

Creativity, imagination, and interpretation are central to humanistic study. The humanities disciplines include art, dance, speech, theater, history, languages, literature, music, and philosophy. A humanities major leads to the traditional liberal arts degree, the bachelor of arts. Those who graduate with a degree in humanities have a wide range of job opportunities.
