Bachelor of Arts in Humanities
The Bachelor of Arts in Humanities is a broad-based, interdisciplinary, liberal arts degree. It is configured in the same manner as the social sciences degree, the most flexible degree delivered at a distance. There is not a set list of required courses for students to take. Working with an academic advisor who evaluates incoming transfer work, each student develops a program of study that best meets his or her educational goals. The focus of the degree is on developing skills in communication, writing, problem solving, and critical thinking with a focus on the humanities. Examples of disciplines within the humanities include English and history. The degree is appropriate for many careers, including social services, law enforcement and corrections, business, and education.
