Minor: Folklore & Public Culture
(FLR)

The interdisciplinary Folklore Program offers perspectives on ethnic, regional, occupational, gender, and other traditional identities of individuals in specific societies and cultures. Students in the program study how traditions enrich and express the dynamics of human behavior throughout the world. Folklore courses examine the historical, cultural, social, political, and economic dimensions of such expressive forms as mythology, legend, art, music, dance, culinary practices, religion, ritual, and ceremony. Folklore and Public Culture minors go on to work as educators, archivists, editors, arts and humanities consultants, museum curators, and festival planners.
