Why Arts and Humanities At USK?
The Arts and Humanities program provides a higher education that is faithful to Orthodox Christianity. The curriculum guides students to read, interpret, analyze, and synthesize the formative works in seven disciplines: Art, History, English Language and Literature, Music, Psychology, Orthodox Christian Theology, and Communications & Public Relations. Students learn to communicate across the disciplines as they develop a broad historical understanding of their own area of study. The Arts and Humanities program thus prepares students for graduate studies and for numerous careers in fields such as law, communication, education, design, writing, business, psychology, and theology.
In addition to the Arts and Humanities core of six classes, students choose from one of the seven concentrations: Art, History, English Language and Literature, Music, Psychology, Orthodox Christian Theology, or Communications & Public Relations. Students are required to take an additional five classes within the chosen concentration, or six in Psychology. In addition, students may choose an Interdisciplinary Track, which adds the requirements of a second concentration. In their final year, students will complete a Capstone Project over the course of two semesters.
