Humanities 1-2

Students can fulfill the first-year writing requirement and the First-year Seminar requirement by taking both terms of Humanities 1 and 2, a selective, interdisciplinary two-term course sequence for first-year students offered only in fall and winter terms. If you are accepted into the sequence, you may choose to enroll in either one or both courses. HUM 1 completes the First-Year Writing 5 requirement; HUM 2 satisfies the First-Year Seminar requirement.

Students interested in Humanities 1 and/or 2 must apply directly to the program during the summer prior to registering for fall term.

Visit the Humanities 1-2 program page for more information.

In Fall 2020 and Winter 2021, all sections of Humanities 1 and Humanities 2 will be offered as remote/synchronous courses in the E timeslot. Synchronous means that there will be fixed times during the week when everyone needs to meet online to fulfill the requirements of the course, in this case 1:10 - 2:15 pm EST on Monaday, Wednesday, Friday.
