Humanities/Arts

The Sufficiency Requirement

To demonstrate a grasp of how creativity is exercised and judged in the humanities and/or arts, students write (or compose, perform, act in or direct, as the case may be) an independent study project for three credit hours building upon five previous courses in a thematic area of interest. The students must select the courses, identify the theme, and persuade a member of the Humanities and Arts department to advise their capstone project by justifying its cohesiveness.
