As graduates secure employment or start ventures of their own, they will demonstrate how awareness of the humanities adds value and enhances the results for the organizations they serve. Study in the humanities encourages students to think outside of the box and creativity, skills that are highly desirable to employers.

The humanities minor is intended to complement major programs of study presently offered at UMC. A minor in humanities helps students broaden and balance their chosen majors with skills such as creative thinking and expression. The minor enables students to recognize opportunities, think creatively, assemble resources, and plan and implement new initiatives in a wide variety of employment settings.

Program Outcomes Students will:

  • Demonstrate awareness of the scope and variety of works in the arts and humanities
  • Expand knowledge of the human condition and human cultures, especially in relation to behavior, ideas, and values expressed in works of human imagination and thought
  • Understand those works as expressions of individual and human values within historical and social context
  • Respond critically to works in the arts and humanities
  • Engage in the creative process or interpretive performance
  • Articulate an informed personal reaction to works in the arts and humanities
