The contract is an essential component of applying to the Humanities major.  There are two contract models that students may follow when composing their proposal: original and alternative.  Both formats require students to determine core areas of interest, while still drawing from multiple disciplines. 
Prior to the initial consultation with the Humanities adviser, consider research topics, themes, or questions that you would like to use as the basis for designing your Humanities major.  You may also compile a list of disciplines - within and outside of the College of Liberal Arts - that support your academic interests.  This information will allow you to begin building your contract.
Download worksheets for the original contract (pdf) and alternative contract (pdf), as well as the Humanities brochure containing sample contracts.
