Humanities and Electives
THE HUMANITIES COMPONENT (18):
Objective: Within the constraints imposed and the opportunities afforded by summer academic scheduling, to provide disciplined experience in and exposure to the differing modes of thought, perception/perspectives and methodologies of the disciplines usually classified as the “humanities” in arriving at informed critical analyses of the human experience.

Requirement: 18 semester hours of academic credit. At least one of the courses taken to satisfy the humanities must also satisfy the diversity requirement. The humanities requirements may be fulfilled in the following fashion during the students’ fourth and fifth summers (fourth and sixth summers for students who begin core clerkships in fifth summer, rather than in the fall) in the joint six-year B.S./M.D. program offered by the university in conjunction with the Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine:

I. Fine Arts (3)
Students are to take at least one approved course from the list of Kent Core Fine Arts courses.

II. History, Literature, Philosophy (12)
Students must take two courses (one lower and one upper division) from two of the following three fields:
History
Literature
Philosophy*
*Students are strongly urged to take an ethics course from Philosophy as parts of the Humanities Requirement.
III. Humanities Elective (3)
Students are to take one additional course in Humanities, Fine Arts or Foreign Language.

IV. Electives (6)
During the time devoted to fulfillment of the humanities requirements of the ILS program, students also will be taking “elective” hours sufficient to complete the 124 semester hours of satisfactorily completed academic credits required for the B.S. degree as offered through the College of Arts and Sciences of Kent State University. Humanities hours in excess of the 18 semester hours minimum of the humanities component requirement will be applied toward these “elective” hours.

Diversity
Students must also satisfy the 6-hour diversity requirement of the university. At least one of the courses taken to satisfy the humanities must also satisfy the diversity requirement. The 6 hour diversity requirement is fulfilled with one domestic diversity course and one global diversity course.
