the humanities seminar: the advanced bookend course
All Humanities majors will take the Humanities Seminar, often in their junior year of study. This intradisciplinary course is designed to foster conversations within and across disciplinary fields that fall within the Humanities. Students will prepare and develop resumes, statements of purpose, and other materials used within career searches. At the same time, course content will include questions about the place of the Humanities and the Arts within contemporary culture and what the future of the Humanities may be. Service learning and career experiences are key features of this course.
