The Humanities Program at Bemidji State is dedicated to this collaboration. Within a flexible structure, it brings together courses from all the allied disciplines, as well as interdisciplinary courses of its own. Its objectives are threefold: 1) to provide multiple frames of reference for analysis and interpretation; 2) to foster increased awareness of the unique character of each of the humanities disciplines, together with an understanding of interrelationships among visual art, music, language, literature, and history; 3) to promote, through the cultivation of curiosity and multicultural sensibilities, the breadth of learning necessary for successful careers in government, business, or the professions.
Note: The Humanities Program is designed as a “stand-beside” major, and students are encouraged to pursue a second major or set of minors, especially those outside the humanities disciplines. Such range improves a student’s professional preparedness and broadens post-baccalaureate options.
See Section II, Enrollment for required high school preparation.Recommended High School Courses
Students are encouraged to discuss with their advisor the option of a second major or minor that might strengthen or complement their major.
See "Note" in program description.
Transfer Students: At least one-third of the credits to be included in the major must be successfully completed at Bemidji State University.
