Bachelor’s Degree in Humanities and Fine Arts

This adult undergraduate degree program available at our campus in Northeast Ohio has traditionally been at the center of educational curricula for Hiram College liberal studies students. The fine arts courses in this degree program will encourage you to explore the world through different perspectives and ask yourself the age-old question, “What does it mean to be human?”

Where can a bachelor’s of humanities and fine arts take me?

During this bachelor's degree in humanities and fine arts program, you will take courses in art, history, literature, theatre, music, philosophy and religious studies, while exploring the moral, spiritual, emotional and aesthetic dimensions of the human condition. You will also focus on the study of aesthetics and values and how they are central to the process of self-reflection and introspection to which humans aspire through the “examined life.”

Today everyone faces questions about the nature and quality of life. This program can help you answer those questions more comfortably and better understand them from a variety of world perspectives.

This adult undergraduate degree program is designed to train you in writing, analytical thinking and communication, ultimately preparing you for graduate school or careers in public relations, teaching and performance, and other opportunities.
