Explore Multiple Interests for Maximum Opportunities

Students with multiple academic interests find freedom in choosing the humanities major, which provides the flexibility to forge a unique academic path for future professional opportunities. This versatility complements emerging trends in the professions, as more and more businesses and organizations seek potential employees with broad liberal arts study rather than a specific concentration.

Humanities students not only take classes in history, English, science, Bible, art, modern languages, math, and music, but they also choose general elective classes suited to their unique interests and future goals. With this rich background of key classes from the arts and sciences, students can choose from a variety of vocations or specialize in any of those fields in graduate school.

Additionally, PCC’s humanities program serves as a starting point for students unsure of what to study in college. Beginning their college career in the humanities program, students often discover a passion for one of the areas they’re studying. Because the humanities degree is so versatile, students can change their major with many credits counting toward their chosen concentration.

The purpose of the humanities major is to give students a broad education in the arts and sciences to equip them with the knowledge and skills for a variety of opportunities and to prepare them to serve the Lord more fully.

PCC’s humanities program gave me a good, well-rounded look at several disciplines. The work at PCC made entrance into the ‘real world’ of ministry and business fairly easy.
