Humanities

The Associate of Arts in Humanities program offers students the opportunity to explore an array of disciplinary fields that provide a solid foundation in Liberal Studies. This program which includes courses that span the disciplines of International Cultures, Comparative Politics, History, Literature and Multiculturalism, prepares students to continue their academic and career interests in a wide range of fields that include law, medicine, education, international relations, human services, diplomacy and administration. As they pursue the broad-based educational foundation afforded by the VFMC Humanities program, students develop analytical and communicative skills which will allow them to evaluate issues and formulate collaborative and practical solutions to the complex and challenging problems of interaction in human society.
