WHY STUDY HUMANITIES AT TIU?

The diversified expertise you will gain as a Humanities major will give you a leg up in any field you are looking to enter after you graduate. Whether your interests lie in politics, law, philosophy, or even business, Trinity will prepare you to succeed.

WHERE YOU STUDY MATTERS

Trinity is located in a peaceful wooded setting, just 25 miles north of downtown Chicago. This prime location offers some of the nation’s best school districts, a variety of ministry organizations, and 12 Fortune 500 companies within 12 miles of campus to apply practically what you are learning in the classroom. In addition, Trinity is close to many coffee shops, restaurants, cultural experiences, and recreational activities when you need a break from the books!

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE ME TO EARN MY DEGREE?

Most Humanities majors complete their degree in 3-4 years. Requirements total 60 hours. Up to 20 hours required in the major may be used to meet general education requirements.

DID YOU KNOW?

You’ll have the opportunity to participate in co-curricular activities on campus such as the school newspaper, student government, or intramural sports to hone your skills and engage with those who are in other programs. All of this contributes to building community with students interested in similar professions.

WHAT WILL I STUDY?

The Humanities major is designed to provide a comprehensive foundation in the areas of art, English, foreign languages, philosophy, and music. This major is a good choice if you want to pursue graduate programs in an area of the humanities or a career in law, theology, government work, research, creative writing, or library work.

PERSONAL. PRACTICAL. BIBLICAL.

At Trinity, you’ll be equipped to think critically and biblically in every area of life as you are challenged to apply your faith to your coursework and classroom conversations. And instead of approaching general education as a checklist of courses to be completed, Trinity’s distinctive educational approach gives you the freedom to choose courses that are most interesting and relevant to you. Working closely with your faculty advisor, you can select from electives to enhance your major, apply toward a minor, create a double major, or simply experience something new. The choices are yours! All along the way, you’ll be cared for and supported, ensuring that you make the most of your college experience.
