Milligan expanding humanities major

MILLIGAN COLLEGE, Tenn. (Nov. 20, 2015) — Milligan College’s School of Arts and Humanities is now offering a variety of new concentrations in its humanities major, greatly expanding the college’s core liberal arts opportunities.

The humanities major now offers concentrations in theology, faith and the arts, American studies and the pre-modern world, within the Area of Humane Learning. Students are required to take courses across disciplines (history, literature, philosophy and fine arts) while focusing 15 hours in one of the new concentrations.

As part of Milligan’s general education requirements, every student studies the development of western civilization, which requires readings from literary and historical greats from ancient to contemporary times.

“Our unique humanities major is central to the Milligan liberal arts education,” said Dr. Craig Farmer, dean of the School of Arts and Humanities. “We think it’s vital for tomorrow’s leaders to be individuals who can think for themselves, analyze information and ideas, and explore the nature and meaning of the world.”
