Humanities

If you are interested in art, music, literature, and languages, you might consider turning your passion for the humanities into a college degree. The humanities major includes multidisciplinary course work in languages, literatures, art, music, philosophy, and religion. Students learn to examine the common issues, ideas, and themes that run throughout different cultures and throughout human history. As a humanities major, you’ll gain the ability to reason critically, communicate effectively, and make connections across broad fields of knowledge.

With the diversity of humanities disciplines, good career choices for the well-rounded humanities student include policy, research, or marketing. A humanities degree will train students to communicate clearly, think critically and make reasoned choices - skills that will be in demand in just about any job. A few popular choices for humanities majors include advertising, foreign service, journalism, law, public administration, publishing, teaching.

Richland offers several humanities courses that will satisfy general elective requirements at most colleges and universities upon transfer and broaden students' understanding of all aspects of society - from past events and achievements to human behavior and relationships among groups.
