The Humanities concentration builds on already learned foundations, while enhancing a students understanding of the qualities which make a human being human. CSU Dominguez Hills refers to their program as, HUX, and designs a curriculum that focuses on training graduates in art, literature, drama, philosophy, and history in order to provide others and themselves the ability to coexist. The HUX study of the humanities stresses three major areas: cultural knowledge, perceptual skills and creative production. 

Graduate students will choose a specific course of study within the Humanities program, to best suit personal and professional aspirations. Each concentration is described by the University below: 

• Curriculum A: Interdisciplinary or General Study
This path is appropriate for students with some undergraduate experience in integrated or interdisciplinary studies and who are familiar with critical thinking and writing across the traditional disciplines. This path provides a broader view of the humanities disciplines: it involves looking at methods in all five disciplines individually and then combining selected disciplinary approaches in order to analyze significant themes, questions, or issues in the humanities. The research and analysis in the capstone thesis should clearly use the theories and methodologies of two or more disciplines.

• Curriculum B: Disciplinary Emphasis
This path provides graduate students with the opportunity to conduct an in-depth 
examination and application of the methods, knowledge, and theory in one of the traditional humanities disciplines. It is designed for the student who wishes to pursue a concentration in a traditional humanities discipline (history, literature, philosophy, art history, music) in an interdisciplinary context.

Successful students should be able to use the education to confidently pursue careers or position requiring an advanced knowledge of agricultural education. With the online program, busy students have the option of earning a valuable education, while still fulfilling current obligations with concurrent educational pursuits, careers or community programs.
