The Department of Humanities offers majors in four programs: Communications (Television), Communications (Public Relations), English, and Religion and Philosophy. Degree programs prepare students for further study at the graduate or professional school level as well as for entry into professional careers in their chosen fields of endeavor.
The several disciplines of the humanities are unified by the fact of their being varied and symbolic ways of sharing human experience and, therefore, human knowledge. The humanities are the mirror and repository of culture. Like cultural institutions they serve human needs. The Department of Humanities prepares students to compete successfully in the global cultural and economic community.
The Humanities Department is designed to assist the University in its mission and recognizes that the study of the Humanities contributes to the quality of life and expects that students will leave its community of scholars and traditions prepared to participate fully in society.
