Arts and Humanities at FHU

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 the student 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, or Math and Natural Sciences. If you would like to pursue a degree in Arts and Humanities, please contact Dr. Loren Warf in the College of Arts and Sciences at lwarf@fhu.edu.
