Established over 30 years ago, Honors in the Humanities is the oldest honors program at Queens College. HTH is designed for students who wish to explore and understand the origins and history of our contemporary artistic and intellectual culture. The HTH Minor is interdisciplinary in design and covers a broad range of fundamental works of literature, religion, history, philosophy, and art, and complements majors in any division of the college. Students must take at least six out of our eight courses to graduate with Honors in the Humanities. There is also the option to write a senior thesis.
