The Humanities MA program is designed for students wishing to pursue specific cross-disciplinary, text and problem-based research projects that culminate in a well-written and satisfying thesis. Ours is a program that relies on active mentorship, small cohorts of students, and an introduction to the necessary tools of higher scholarship in fields such as classical, medieval, and renaissance thought and culture, the Asian literary and religious tradition, modernity and its critique, social and political thought, religion and culture, humanities and citizenship, and humanities and the environment. We believe in an active intellectual community to which both graduate students and faculty contribute. Those students wanting to proceed to doctoral work elsewhere can begin to lay down the basics of the background they will need to apply for and accomplish such work; those wishing for professional or personal reasons a stand-alone MA will find the Humanities MA a good vehicle to achieve their goals.
