Humanities Associate in Arts

Be inspired - study the humanities

If you are planning to transfer to a four-year college or university, you should become familiar with your chosen school’s requirements. See your Academic Advisor for assistance in developing your Student Education Plan (SEP) or visit

Courses listed under Art, Communication, English, Foreign Languages, History, Humanities, Music, Philosophy, and Theatre with transferable Humanities credits may be taken as electives for a humanities concentration. Competency in a foreign language is not a degree requirement at Lake Michigan College; however, Humanities majors are urged strongly to complete at least two semesters of French, German, or Spanish. As a Humanities major, you should seek a broad-based education through careful selection of courses under general electives.

Consult a faculty advisor for specific guidance. There is a 60-credit degree requirement needed for graduation.
