    Description

    The Humanities major condenses art history, music history, and literature—cultural expression in every significant form—into one powerful major. You’ll survey the human experience through various lenses: One course might examine the art of the ancient Greeks, another might analyze contemporary music and songwriting, and another might examine Civil War literature. At Suffolk, you’re within blocks of thriving museums, landmark music venues, and libraries.

    Often, Humanities majors continue to graduate school in art history, English, or other liberal arts disciplines. Others pursue careers in arts management and museum work.
