The different emphases in CCS prepare you for a successful career in a culturally diverse global society and economy. Interdisciplinary skills of analysis, interpretation, and communication will provide you with a comparative approach to the study of human culture in its diversity and interconnections. In the Art History emphasis, you will uncover the "what" behind a work of art, "how" that work imparts meaning visually, and the cultural context—the “why”—from which it derives. The Asian Studies and the Asian and North African Studies - IGP emphases will give you a global edge as you learn about how traditional cultures across the Asian continent and North Africa inform present-day decision-making. In the Public Humanities emphasis, you will be prepared to contribute practical, well-reasoned, historically aware, and culturally sensitive methods and theories to building and sustaining the common good. Through interdisciplinary academic coursework, experiential learning, and professional development, you will gain global cultural knowledge and skills enabling you to apply public humanities principles to a wide array of career fields and personal endeavors. The Comparative Study of Religions emphasis will provide you with the framework for understanding the religious motives and differing beliefs, practices, and values of people that shape their decisions and actions, their history, social structure, and psychology.

This degree provides valuable preparation for graduate work or professional study in the arts, humanities, and social sciences.
