About the Program
The humanities major is designed for students who desire a broad undergraduate education with some specialization in one or two areas. Students pursuing the major in humanities must take a minimum of 30 hours and a maximum of 40 hours of course work in humanities in addition to the general education curriculum for the B.A. degree. Any hours in humanities beyond the maximum of 40 must count as electives. A minimum of 12 semester hours in humanities course work must be completed in residence at Oklahoma City University.
Distribution of the course work must reflect at least one course beyond the general education curriculum requirement from each of the five departments (art, English, mass communications, modern languages, and philosophy) within the division and from the Wimberly School of Religion and the Margaret E. Petree College of Performing Arts. In departments which do not have a general education requirement, such as mass communications, an introductory course will fulfill this requirement.
