Ph.D. Minor in Humanities
The Ph.D. minor in Humanities is a sequence of interdisciplinary seminars covering the following five periods: Antiquity, Medieval, Early-Modern, Enlightenment, and Modern. A framing seminar that leads students to reflect on what it means to teach and study the humanities in the 21st century will also be required. The Program is designed to provide students with broad historical knowledge and skills for conducting interdisciplinary research; to prepare students to teach beyond their area of expertise; and to create communities of students and faculty from different departments working on similar periods.
