The minor in humanitarian studies is open to all undergraduate students at JMU. Three of the required 18 credit hours must consist of HUMN 201.

Current minors should refer to the Canvas advising site for advising assistance. The Canvas site hosts up-to-date information on Course offerings and override procedures.

Applying to the minor is completed through MyMadison. Instructions will be added to your application on MyMadision. Applications to the minor will not be processed during the 2 weeks prior the start of Enrollment appointments. The application hold is lifted once Open Enrollment begins. The minor is in high-demand thus an application is not a guarantee of approval. 

JMU Faculty: If you are offering an upcoming course that you think should count as a HUMN elective but is not on the HUMN course catalog offerings, please email a course summary and draft syllabus to Tara Parsons prior to advertising the course as a HUMN elective. If approved, we will notify the minors.
