Humanities Major: Interdisciplinary Studies in Culture

The Humanities Major in Interdisciplinary Studies in Culture (HMSC) is designed to offer students a foundation in the Humanities, with particular reference to theories of culture and cultural practice. Its aim is to give students an interdisciplinary training across the breadth of the Humanities that will equip them to analyze and engage with the local, national and international aspects of our globalized world. The major is structured in such a way as to facilitate an introduction to theoretical and methodological approaches to the field; to encourage familiarity with topics in the study of culture in different disciplines; to provide more specialized knowledge which will relate to the student’s interdisciplinary thesis topic. The choice of courses in this major is left to the individual student; in consultation with their adviser, students will opt for those courses which will enable them to pursue their own interests within the general rubric of the degree.
