The Humanities Division offers BA/BS degree options in Business & Communication, Communication Arts, Communication Arts: Secondary Education, General Studies: Humanities, Interdisciplinary Studies, and Sports Media Studies.  BA degrees are offered in English, English: Creative Writing, English: Publishing Arts, and English: Secondary Education. The Division also offers an AA in Liberal Arts, minors in Art, Communication, Creative Writing, English, Middle School English Language Arts, Music, Nez Perce Language, Publishing Arts, Spanish and Theatre, as well as a minor/certificate in Professional Writing.

Students in Humanities programs and courses receive a rich exposure to both theoretical and practical knowledge, preparing them for professional success as well as further education. Humanities students have many opportunities to demonstrate what they learn in the classroom to the public: through student music, film and theater performances, Talking River (a literary journal), speech and debate, internships in the schools, peer consulting in the Writing Center and Spanish Lab, film festivals, art exhibits, and regular open mic events.

The Humanities Division is deeply engaged in delivering General Education Core courses, as well as foreign and heritage language courses, and professional preparation courses. These programs and courses help students achieve their educational and professional objectives. Humanities faculty invigorate their teaching and service with their scholarly and creative endeavors, often in collaborative partnerships with students.

Policies for Foreign/Heritage Language Minors

Because all lower-division courses in foreign and heritage languages are intended for nonnative speakers and because students’ levels and types of proficiency vary widely, a prerequisite for each language course above the 101 course number is the permission of the instructor. Students with proficiency apparently adequate for a given course may challenge the course for credit or enroll in a more advanced course and, upon successful completion, receive competency credit for the course(s) earlier in the sequence. Credit for laboratory courses may not be gained through examination or placement. Minor programs in languages aim to achieve language proficiency at the standardized level of intermediate-high as defined by the Proficiency Guidelines of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL).
