What will I learn?

The Humanities major offers a broadly-based liberal arts education and an integrated interdisciplinary experience that draws on Literature, History, Philosophy, the visual and performing arts, and culture courses in modern languages. Each discipline has its characteristic methods and interpretive moves, which are studied independently and which come together in an introductory methods course and a senior capstone seminar, which offer intensive interdisciplinary study of themes and historical periods.

This major would be magnificent preparation for a career in law (especially combined with FDU’s own prelaw minor), or any other field that prizes rigorous yet flexible thinking, well-honed research skills, clear but sophisticated writing, and being able to take multiple perspectives on an issue. It is also strongly recommended for elementary education.

Program Outcomes

  • Understand how various methodologies specific to areas of study within the Humanities are effectively employed in the study of texts or other cultural artifacts.
  • Understand methodology and/or content differences in different disciplines.
  • Demonstrate critical reading, reasoning, and writing skills that contribute to the study of the Humanities.
