Minor In Humanities

Add some interest to your resume; everyone else has the qualifications, but what's going to make you interesting and stand out? An unusual course of study. Make good on the work you've done in the UCOR. Experience small, creative classes. Complement your hard skills with complex thinking.

Program Requirements 

For the Humanities minor, students take a total of 40 units. Only courses passed with a final grade of a "C" or better count for credit towards the minor. Of the 40 required units, 15 take place in the UCOR: Creative Expression and Interpretation, Inquiry Seminar in the Humanities, and Humanities and Global Challenges. Courses in the Humanities make up the other 25 credits. Students take at least one course in each of the following three categories: Intellectual Heritage, Expression, and Ethical Engagement. The remaining credits may come from any courses listed in those three categories. See course listings here.


Students from any college on campus can join the program. All candidates must interview with a faculty member. The Humanities minor is in addition to any other program of study. Learn more about admissions here.
