What can you do with an English, history, communication, or writing major? Why do these disciplines matter beyond your interest in them? We see you finding these answers through Public Humanities.

The Public Humanities minor explores how the skills and values learned in the humanities prepares you for meaningful careers beyond college. It also invites you to consider how the discipline-specific approaches to scholarship and creativity offered by the humanities empower you to reach audiences beyond the walls of the College and to engage with broader public concerns and cultural interests.
