Humanities Concentration – General Studies BLS

The humanities are the backbone of civilization; the history of where we came from, the art that inspires us, the language that allows us to communicate and the philosophies that guide our actions. They are what transform a group of human beings into a civilized community. The humanities concentration further examines these facets of society and how they affect one another. 

All students are presented with foundation coursework in the liberal arts, covering math, English, history, science and a broad range of other related subjects. Beyond these base courses, students are able to choose five humanities courses based on personal or professional interests, which are then paired with upper level courses in English, social science and theology or philosophy. Class schedules are flexible, with accelerated courses and one-on-one counseling available to ensure that the education process fits the lifestyle of the adult student.
