What is Humanities?
The Humanities program of Loyola Marymount University values the ways in which cognitive, moral, and aesthetic disciplines have enriched our understanding of the human condition. Majors explore the arts, history, literature, languages, philosophy, and other disciplines. Courses are offered from departments including English, Art History, Archaeology, Philosophy, History, and Theological Studies.
The program is fine preparation for students interested in professional schools in law, business, or education.
What do Humanities Majors do?
Humanities majors learn how knowledge is pursued, established, and critically evaluated. They learn how artists convey a sense of the world’s surface and its depth. They also gain analytical and communication skills.
Humanities majors design their own programs in consultation with the director of an academic department. During the first portion of the major, students become familiar with the studio arts, art history, and a modern or classical language. During their junior and senior years, students choose an area of concentration in a liberal arts discipline. Majors then choose one or two support disciplines within the Humanities, ranging from literature to philosophy, to provide perspective in the area of specialization.
