HUM 470. Capstone. 3 Hours.
A study of some specific topic which integrates and focuses course work a student has done in the humanities major. Normally it is directed by the committee which guided the student's major. Open only to seniors majoring in Humanities. Offered every year.
Prerequisite: HUM 469 with a minimum grade of D.
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.
