Welcome to the Humanities Program
The Humanities Program offers interdisciplinary and international classes in a wide variety of subject areas, from applied practice in media arts and technologies, to the study of ethical issues involved in technology, to courses that examine various cultures such as China, Japan, and South Africa. International courses complement Cal Poly-sponsored study abroad programs in London, Spain, Thailand, and Latin America. Many humanities classes satisfy University general education and breadth requirements.
The program also offers two interdisciplinary minors that allow students to actively engage in the study of technology: the Media Arts and Technologies Minor and the Values, Technology and Society Minor. Both minors are available to students throughout the University, regardless of students’ technical backgrounds.
If you are interested in pursuing a minor in Humanities, make an appointment with Dr. Jane Lehr.
