Liberal Arts Honors - Minor
This minor will allow talented students the opportunity to craft a coherent and challenging program by utilizing at least four distinct Liberal Arts disciplines, as well as requiring significant investment in upper-level liberal arts coursework to include research or independent study as a capstone experience.
The minor is designed to ensure that students, in consultation with their honors advisor, will be able to create a minor that will expose them to an intelligent and well-conceived liberal arts experience, giving students a breadth and depth of experience in the liberal arts
For the vast majority of minors the upper-level requirement is normally 9 hours. This minor requires students to complete 12 hours at the upper level from different departments. That would presuppose a superior acquisition of knowledge already acquired in different disciplines, particularly as many of our 300- and 400-level courses have required prerequisites. The capstone experience of research or independent study ensures that students will be able not only to acquire a better understanding of a cross-disciplinary liberal arts approach, but to apply it in practice as well as theory.
