Background
 
 

Humanities - A.A. Degree (Transfer)

Humanities degree at HCC.
Where art, religion, philosophy, and culture meet.

This curriculum is designed for students with interdisciplinary interests in the humanities and for students wishing to focus on areas of film, philosophy, or women’s studies.

It prepares you for transfer to a four-year institution to further their studies in similar concentrations. You are advised to check the requirements of the institution to which they intend to transfer.

Upon graduation, you should be able to:

  • Identify, understand, evaluate, and apply ethical reasoning.
  • Develop and demonstrate intellectual curiosity, open-mindedness, tolerance for ambiguity, and risk-taking abilities as applicable to the humanities.
  • Demonstrate awareness of the ways in which people throughout the ages and in different cultures have grown in understanding of themselves and their environments by seeking to clarify the human experience.
  • Develop perceptual awareness and aesthetic sensitivity as well as a foundation for a life-long relationship with the arts, humanities, and social sciences.
