In collaboration with Whitworth's College of Arts & Sciences, the School of Continuing Studies offers a B.A. in humanities. This interdisciplinary degree builds on the strength of a liberal arts core curriculum, providing the adult student with a balanced and coherent study of the arts, the humanities, and the natural and social sciences. Whitworth is dedicated to providing an academically excellent liberal arts education that will equip each student with the skills necessary to respond creatively to the personal and professional challenges of life.
Learning outcomes of this major prepare the student to:
- understand human experience, thought and values through exposure to texts and varying academic disciplines; and
- explore various options for study and/or professional engagement.
Students have the opportunity to design their own academic program in consultation with an advisor. A minimum of 45 semester credits is required for the completion of the humanities major.
