Major in Humanities Interdisciplinary (HUM)
The Major in Interdisciplinary Program in Humanities (HUM) is no longer enrolling students as of Fall 2013.
The interdisciplinary program in Humanities, housed in the Department of Comparative Literary and Cultural Studies, is designed for undergraduates attracted to humanistic study-art, history, languages, literature, music, philosophy, religious studies, theatre-who prefer not to specialize in any single field. It involves introductory and upper-division work in several departments, described in the requirements below. Potential majors are strongly urged to consult the director of undergraduate studies to help them prepare individual programs.Major in Humanities
