Minor in Humanities
Recognizing that a fragmented approach to knowledge is one of the pitfalls of contemporary higher education, Evangel offers the Humanities minor to encourage students and faculty to broaden their perspectives and integrate their knowledge. This minor’s cultural breadth and structural flexibility complements all majors, especially those leading to instruction in humanities, art, music or english on the elementary and secondary levels.
The Humanities minor requires between 18-20 credit hours, of which 9-11 must be Humanities courses. The remaining credits must come from two of the following areas: Anthropology, Art, Bible, Communication, Economics, Education, English, French, Geography, Government, General Science, History, Missions, Philosophy, Marketing, Music, Psychology, Religion, Theatre, Theology, Sociology, Spanish, Social Science and Social Work. The result is a well-rounded approach for students who desire a greater understanding of culture, history and the arts.
Each of Evangel's academic programs is made up of a set of core curriculum, program requirements and electives. The courses listed below are just a small sample of courses that might be taken as a part of this specific program.
