Honors Minor in Humanistic or Artistic Expression (E)

Building on the Honors College core value of authenticity, the Honors Minor in Humanistic or Artistic Expression incorporates a central theme wilderness. On one hand, the wilderness can represent unpredictable environments that test the limitations of human frailty, adaptation, and resilience. Alternatively, the wilderness metaphor can represent the space beyond the frontier of social constraint, where the “true” forces of the natural world – and the self – find expression. Students completing this minor will be prepared to reflect on the tension surrounding authentic expression through such lenses as history, communication, literature, poetry, philosophy, and theatre.

This minor fulfills the E area of the REAL Curriculum. In addition to developing proficiency with humanistic or artistic expression, students will build connections with content outside of these areas as well.
