About the Program

The Humanities Program does not directly lead to a degree or certificate of completion; however, the subject matter within it can prove vital and essential to other degrees. Philosophy, History, Music, the Arts, and unique skillsets such as jewelry making are all inclusions under the program's umbrella.
