BA in Humanities*
Within the broadly interdisciplinary BA in Humanities* degree program at JPCatholic, we study human culture and how we understand and record the human experience. People have used philosophy, theology, art, music, literature, history and language to process and document our world. These academic disciplines traditionally make up the Humanities and their study gives us the opportunity to connect with our past and understand our contemporary culture. With the great texts of western civilization as a foundation, the program provides students with a deep study of culture, and intellectual history.
We offer three areas of emphasis: Theology & Philosophy; Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PP&E); and Creative & Screen Writing.
