Program Learning OutcomesCurriculum Code: LAFL-AA


     The Humanities curriculum is designed to provide students with a rigorous introduction to the humanities as preparation for a variety of professions such as teaching, writing, law, film and communications. The curriculum attempts to balance the need for a broad background with an opportunity for an early experience in a particular branch of learning to foster greater depth of understanding.

     Opportunities to explore specialized areas are offered as options in cinema studies, communications, creative writing, English, foreign language and philosophy. Each option provides students with a solid background for transfer to baccalaureate programs in a chosen field.
