Favorite Professors

The evening Humanities and Cultural Studies major offers adult learners admitted into the Adult Degree Completion (ADC) program the opportunity to study the meaning of the human condition through interdisciplinary and multi-discipline course work at a time and pace that better matches their work schedule. The course of study brings together such disciplines as art, art history, history, literature, music, philosophy, and religion to help the student examine the fundamental questions that have shaped the human community. This program requires a concentration in a particular area (options listed below), allowing for depth of study and better preparation for a postgraduate degree. Competence in critical analysis, written and spoken discourse, character formation and a love of learning are hallmarks of a student completing this major.
