DOUBLE MAJORS/MINORS
Courses taken outside the major may be selected 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 economics, English, political science, history, philosophy, psychology or religious studies. With careful planning, students have double-majored in the fine arts, science, or business.
