Bachelor of Humanities and Arts

The Bachelor of Humanities and Arts (BHA) intercollege degree program combines the strengths of the College of Fine Arts (CFA) and the Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences (H&SS). This degree is designed for academically and artistically talented students who want to develop their interest in the fine arts, while also pursuing studies in the humanities and social/behavioral sciences.

Students choose their fine arts concentration from among the five schools in CFA: Architecture, Art, Design, Drama, or Music. Students choose their humanities and social sciences concentration from the list of majors and minors offered by H&SS, or by self-designing an interdepartmental concentration.

The most important aspect of the BHA program is for students to blend their interests, and to explore the connections between their chosen disciplines. The program also provides enough flexibility for students to broaden or deepen their concentrations, and to explore other areas in which they may be interested.
