The Humanities degree is offered cooperatively by three separate programs at the Marshall University or disciplines: Classics, Philosophy and Religious Studies. 


Key facts

  • Our major at the Marshall University is unique in two ways: students may choose course work equivalent to a major in a single discipline or create a broader curriculum of their choice from various humanities courses; and our degree also has a strong interdisciplinary side. The final degree certificate shows both the Humanities major and the particular discipline the student concentrated in.
  • The goal of the Classics program is to help us deepen our understanding of ourselves and our culture, by exploring the ways human beings find meaning in their experience. We explore these ways by studying both our own individual insights and the artistic, philosophical and religious works that have expressed and shaped human experience.

Programme Structure

Three courses introducing the specific goals and methods of the three disciplines (9 hours). These courses place special emphasis on the particular discipline’s approaches to knowledge, critical thought, skills of expression, and human development. Students must choose from those listed below, one for each discipline:

  • Classics
  • Philosophy
  • Religious Studies
