Uncovering the possibility within.
Explore the art, music, and literature of cultures throughout the ages. As a Humanities major, you’ll immerse yourself in the humanist tradition, unlocking your potential.
Herkimer College’s Humanities A.A. program is flexible, and provides you with a springboard for many majors and career options. Graduates transfer to four-year institutions to continue studies in writing, literature, speech, interpersonal relations, journalism, communication, music, art, philosophy, and religion.
You’ll have opportunities to express yourself in so many ways—from contributing to the college’s award-winning arts and literary magazine, Phaethon, to joining the General’s Theater Group or being featured in our Student Art Show at the Cogar Gallery. Plus, you can participate in Art Club and enjoy field trips to galleries, as well as take part in the many cultural events on campus.
