Choosing a minor in a Humanities & Arts discipline is a great way for students to gain expertise in an area beyond their major; embrace the opportunity to fulfill an inner passion; or take control of their curriculum through our Individually Designed Minor program.
Fulfilling a minor in the Humanities & Arts WPI requires students to complete at least two units of thematically related activity including a capstone experience (two units usually equates to six courses). For most students, this means that a minor in an area of the Humanities & Arts requires three courses beyond those normally taken for the Humanities & Arts Requirement.
