HUM 101. First-Year Seminar in the Humanities. 3 Hours.
A course designed to engage students, during their first semester, in small-group seminars in humanistic inquiry, with special attention given to value questions and issues. The course includes substantial reading and group discussion, considerable work on English composition skills (comparable to that typically encountered in first-semester college English courses), and the writing of numerous short essays and other papers. Sections of the course are taught by members of the departments of English language and literature, fine arts, foreign languages, history, philosophy, and religion. Required of all incoming first-year students.
The Humanities major is an interdisciplinary study that combines courses offered in the following disciplines: Art History, English, Modern Languages, Literatures, and Cultures, History, Philosophy, Religion and Theater. It offers students who are interested the opportunity to design their major, but it also requires extra initiative to do so. Students considering this major should understand that it is not intended for those who simply have a broad interest in the humanities; such students should major in one of the humanities departments and take electives in the others. The major is meant to study specific disciplines and then incorporate them into a final capstone/project. Any student interested in this major should see the coordinator, who will discuss the suitability of the major for the student’s interests and will help in selecting faculty members who might appropriately serve as a committee to direct the student’s major.
