University of Southern Maine
At USM, a student can explore history, philosophy, art, literature, language and more with the distinguished Humanities faculty. This major provides the opportunity to combine existing liberal arts credits from other institutions with USM Humanities courses to create an efficient and coherent path to degree completion. Studying the Humanities offers a student the framework and skills for meeting the challenges of our complex and constantly changing world.

7-Week Online Format
Finishing a degree is challenging. Work and family commitments often make it difficult to maintain steady progress toward a degree. USM’s 7-week online format offers students both the convenience of taking classes online and the opportunity to focus on one course at a time. The traditional 15-week fall and spring semesters are divided into two 7-week sessions. Students can make steady progress while taking one course per session. If life interrupts a session, the next session is right around the corner. In addition, USM offers a 4-week online winter session, and two 7-week sessions each summer. Graduation is a step closer every seven weeks.
