Major

The Human Sciences in the Contemporary world major (B.A.) requires a total of 40 course hours, a senior thesis, and an oral defense of the thesis.

Twenty-eight hours are specified as follows: (i) twenty-one credit hours in courses designated as Human Sciences in the Contemporary World courses: HUSC 2301 (2311 may be approved as an alternative), 3311, 3312, 3331, 3332, 3342, 4341, 4342, and 4142; (ii) three hours in philosophy: PHI 3328 (Recent Philosophy) or an approved alternative; and (iii) three hours in statistics: MAT 2305 (Introduction to Statistic) or an equivalent.

Twelve hours are elective, chosen from appropriate Constantin College and College of Business courses as explained in the following paragraph.

Students pursuing the B.A. will formulate a study plan that must be approved by the Director; the plan must be approved no later than the fifth week of the fall semester of their junior year. The plan will include the twenty-eight course hours specified above plus an additional twelve elective credit hours of Constantin College and College of Business courses approved by the Director (see the link "Courses," on the left of this page, for further information).  At least nine of these elective hours must be at the 3000-level or higher, and at least six of them must be in a single department. HUSC Majors are especially encouraged to take courses in recent history. The twelve elective hours should be chosen with a view toward the required bachelor’s thesis, which must reflect significant research on and original analysis of a topic approved by the Director.
