Degrees Courses

Friendly URL:

Humanities courses (those with a HUM designation) focus on a blend of topics in art, philosophy, history, religion, music, theatre, film, literature, and architecture. Many of these topics are also found in specialized courses (literature, philosophy, music, art, and theatre) but courses with the HUM designation always involve more than one of these topics and often include material in cultural studies.
