A solid foundation in Humanities and Fine Arts will enrich students’ understanding of the world, improve their empathy and flexibility of mind, and inspire appreciation for others in both personal and professional situations. Studies in Humanities and Fine Arts help societies answer big questions about how humans act and how they express themselves. What is the meaning, value, and purpose of human life? How might a just society function? How and why do people express themselves through fine arts?
Students must complete a total of 12 credit hours* (4 courses) in HFA from at least two prefixes (i.e., ART, ENGL, HIST, MCLL, PHIL, etc.). UHON students may satisfy more than two courses from the UHON prefix because that college offers interdisciplinary general education seminars.
