Arts and Humanities
This specialization is designed for students who desire a broad based approach to humanistic study. Intellectual interests and problems often do not correspond to a single academic area. The student may construct a highly individualized and interdisciplinary course of study. Though the program by design emphasizes breadth of study, it also seeks to foster a rigorous and probing attitude toward some issues and problems within the student’s humanistic areas.
Diverse intellectual and vocational goals are served by the program. The opportunity to fashion a course of study to address specific concerns not covered in traditional programs is foremost. The degree can become the basis for more advanced study of an interdisciplinary nature. It should also meet the needs of teachers of general arts and humanities in secondary schools and two-year colleges.
Students choosing the Arts and Humanities area of specialization may select three subject matter areas from the list of appropriate programs.

Art and Visual Culture
