Double Majors

Courses taken outside the major may be selected to complement the Humanistic Studies Program or to provide the student with a second area of concentration. Many students combine a major in Humanistic Studies with a major or minor in another discipline such as English, Economics, Political Science, History, Philosophy, Psychology, or Religious Studies. With careful planning, a few students have double majored in the fine arts, science, or business. Students with a double major are urged to fulfill the requirements in their other major as quickly as possible in order to avoid scheduling conflicts with their required HUST courses.

Minors

A minor in Humanistic Studies requires a minimum of fifteen hours of major courses (listed abovel). Minors usually complete the first year of the Program. They are encouraged to start the Program in their junior year.
