Humanities (Arizona State University)
A humanities program at Arizona State University allows students to earn a bachelor’s degree upon the completion of a 120-credit course of study. The program focuses on humanity’s pursuit of culture, including creative fields, such as art, music and literature, and the study of an individual’s purpose in the world in fields like philosophy and religion.
During the program, a student may hone their communication skills as well, and learn the common elements of human interaction which play out across a broad swath of society. Students who study the humanities may be expected to complete a great deal of written and oral work throughout their studies to demonstrate their knowledge of the field.
Humanities graduates have no shortage of options when looking to find a career upon receiving their degree. In addition to pursuing a creative option such as becoming an artist, many graduates opt to work in fields where their extensive knowledge can be put to use such as museum curation, or where their creative skills are valued in technical writing.
ASU's academic programs are spread across campuses in the Phoenix Metropolitan Area; however, unlike most multi-campus institutions, the campuses of ASU are all individually different- each has its own distinct function to fulfill in line with the university's mission.Read more About this school
