Grant Summary

$25,000 over 12 months to lay the groundwork to launch a 15-credit certificate in the humanities that features a 2-semester Transformative Text series, augmented with modules of applied research and life skills; 2-3 thematically organized humanities courses that meet general education requirements and help students connect the humanities to their aspired fields of work; and a capstone experience that intertwines the humanities into their pre-professional final year of study.
