Differentiate Yourself with a Specialty in Humanities & Arts

By selecting a concentration within the Humanities & Arts (HUA), students may nurture an existing passion or develop a new interest, while gaining valuable skills necessary for future success.

Each HUA concentration provides a rich and diverse education that develops critical thinking and problem-solving skills employers seek.

Concentrations are designed to immerse students in a particular area of study, not to simply scratch the surface. For example, students choosing a Modern Languages concentration with a Spanish focus will not only learn the language itself, but also delve into the culture of Spanish speaking countries – including their people, history, and traditions. 

As with all majors at WPI, students choosing an HUA concentration benefit from our groundbreaking approach to education, which combines theoretical study with hands-on project requirements. This project-based method gives WPI students the opportunity to gain professional skills, teamwork, experience, and the confidence to dive right in, regardless of the challenge.  

Humanities & Arts concentrations are available in the following fields of study:
