Department Overview: Humanities courses (those with a HUM designation) focus on a blend of topics in art, literature, philosophy, history, religion, music, theatre, film, and architecture. Segments include 1) The Classical, 2) The Medieval and Renaissance, and 3) The Modern. These courses prepare students for success by exploring the diversity and the influences of historical moments on the values of the western world and especially of modern Americans.

Program Level Outcomes:

  • Critique culturally diverse works in art, literature, music, and architecture.
  • Identify the major characteristics of the era and connect them to western culture today.
  • Competently employ creativity, discipline, and technique in the production of assigned class projects.
  • Analyze these eras critically by presenting opinions and responses to reading/viewing through use of textual evidence and other rhetorical devices.

Degrees: Students may earn an Associate in Arts AA-DTA degree (90 credits) which is designed for students planning to transfer to a baccalaureate institution with junior standing. Students pursuing this degree should meet with an academic advisor at WWCC and an advisor at their intended baccalaureate institution to determine an appropriate educational plan. (See AA-DTA in Degrees section of catalog).
