Liberal Arts - Humanities Specialization
Before the natural sciences and the social sciences appeared on the scene in western culture, human beings attempted to understand and make sense of their existence through descriptions now included in the broad category of "humanities." Religion, philosophy, drama, rhetoric, literature, and the fine arts all attempted to portray the human condition and our place in the social and natural worlds without the aid of scientific method, measurement, or instruments. Rather than being displaced by science, the humanities continue to account for our existence through insight, individual and shared experience, reasoned analysis, speculation, and aesthetic expression. The Humanities Specialization in Liberal Arts prepares students for transfer to four year schools who intend to major in one of the humanities disciplines. Completion of a bachelors degree in a humanities discipline can also open the door to a variety of graduate or professional programs.
