The Master of Arts in Humanities is based on the great ideas, works, and thinkers that have defined civilization as embodied in the “great books” tradition established at the University of Chicago and now in use at other leading institutions such as the University of Notre Dame, Boston University, and Columbia University. The curriculum addresses humankind’s fundamental topics through study of courses in humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. Students who pursue this degree will find it excellent preparation for careers in writing, presenting ideas, and creative problem solving, or they may use it as a classical foundation for the doctoral degree.

MA in Humanities
September 8, 2010
This is a regionally accredited program that enables motivated students to earn a MA degree in general humanities largely through independent reading and writing. It was exactly the kind of curriculum that fit readily into my professional life. It is NOT an easy course of study to complete. Graduate students are expected to be self-disciplined and proficient at reading and writing. The faculty with whom I studied all held traditional PhDs from well-known universities. It ...
