Public Humanities Minor

What do I do with an English major?

Or a major in history, communication, writing, or Spanish?

What do such majors have to do with the outside world? 

This program aims to address these questions. Designed for students with majors or minors in humanities disciplines as well as in other areas, the minor in public humanities explores how the skills and values learned in the humanities prepare students for meaningful careers beyond college. It also invites students to consider how the discipline-specific approaches to scholarship and creativity offered by the humanities empower students to reach audiences beyond the walls of the College and to engage with broader public concerns and cultural interests.
