Graduate Interdisciplinary M.A. in the Humanities (English, History, Philosophy)

Purpose

The M.A. Humanities program fosters cross-disciplinary social and cultural analysis and emphasizes personal/intellectual growth, breadth of awareness, moral sensitivity, and balanced judgment. It provides a graduate-level competency that prepares one for admission to related doctoral programs. It also provides professionals with an opportunity for further education, including teachers desiring advanced training in the key high school subjects of English, History, or Philosophy, equipping them for effective service in their educational and social context. The program increases student understanding of the interdisciplinary relationships in the educational process, enhances leadership potential through development of the skills of analysis, critical thinking, research and communication, and strengthens each student’s ability to evaluate cultural trends from historical, philosophical, and literary perspectives.
