Bachelors Degree in Humanities

Program Details

People interested in art, philosophy, writing, the social sciences, history, journalism, or a variety of other careers require talents that involve practice and study of their field, but also a wider understanding of the world in order to produce or create something that can relate to a population.  This is done by creating a foundation including the knowledge and creations of people throughout history. Even students interested in fields only tangentially related to the humanities can benefit from a study of the humanities, including fields such as law, healthcare, education, public relations, and government. Through humanities, students will analyze and learn from generations of leaders and visionaries and learn to develop creative solutions to make an impact in whatever field they go into.

Saint Mary of the Woods College offers a Bachelor Degree in Humanities that is available to students who are interested in the cultural evolution of mankind, or see themselves as leaders who can help develop cultural heritage or shape social views or social policy.  Through the program, students will develop their spiritual and philosophical way of thinking, develop an in-depth cultural awareness and historical perspective, develop intellectual integrity and stronger self-awareness, and develop a meaningful involvement in their field of study. 

As part of the program, students will have a general studies program in order to develop their abilities as a well-rounded student or inpidual, and a concentration in the humanities. The curriculum is made of courses in fields such as history, the humanities, interdisciplinary study, literature, philosophy, and theology.
