Providence College (Providence, RI 02918-7000)
Raymond Hain (Project Director: October 2017 to November 2019)
An Integrated Future: Business, Medicine, and the Humanities

The collaboration of faculty from humanities and professional fields in planning for two new interdisciplinary minors, one in medical humanities and one in business and society.

Providence College proposes to lay the groundwork for two new interdisciplinary minors (with possible future expansion into majors): a minor in Humanities with a concentration in Medical Humanities, and a minor in Humanities with a concentration in Business and Society. Our goal is three-fold: (1) to link our robust humanities core curriculum to our most popular pre-professional majors by re-imagining our currently underused Humanities Program; (2) to deepen and synthesize the humanities education of our target students so that they see the relevance of the humanities to their professional lives; and (3) to make it more likely that students will pursue a second major in the humanities alongside their pre-professional major.
