Major in Arts and Humanities

If you would like to pursue a degree in Arts and Humanities, please contact Dr. Kippy Myers in the School of Arts and Humanities at kmyers@fhu.edu.

The major in Arts and Humanities is unique.  Most major programs require a list of specific classes that the student must take.  Some students find this approach to be restrictive.  They want a multi-disciplinary major that enables them to explore a more diverse range of classes in their major. The Arts and Humanities major enables them to explore a greater variety of courses that will also serve as their major requirements.

The Arts and Humanities major requires that the courses selected by the student fall into three basic categories: Arts and Humanities, Social and Behavioral Sciences, and Math and Natural Sciences.  The student selects applicable courses from a list of guidelines available from the Assistant Dean of the School of Arts and Humanities.
