Humanities Minor

What Does It Mean to be Human?

The minor in the humanities exposes undergraduates to diverse examples of human thought and culture and to the various interdisciplinary methods and theories used in humanities research and scholarship. The minor is rooted in the idea that the opportunity to study an assortment of humanities topics from a wide range of perspectives provides an excellent complement to more closely focused coursework undertaken in any major, inside or outside the humanities.

Minor requirements (7 units)

  • Up to 3 200-level Humanities Institute classes
  • Balance from 300-level Humanities Institute classes, which may include 399 and/or a humanities internship through the Chicago Field Studies program
