Humanities: Approved courses are concerned with defining and disputing that which is understood to be quintessentially "human": studying language, texts, thought, and culture; their definition, interpretation, and historical development; and their reflection of human values, beliefs, and traditions. Courses in a variety of disciplines explicate the underlying assumptions, methods of study, practices, theories, and disputes appropriate to those disciplines.
Approved courses generally fall into one of three categories (all open to majors and non-majors):
- introductions to basic materials and methods in the disciplines;
- introductions to subfields or groupings of materials in the disciplines;
- literature and culture courses taught in a foreign language higher than the third-semester level.
