Humanities Graduate Programs & Humanities Graduate Schools
Humanities graduate programs generally concern themselves with the human condition. Asking and attempting to answer some of life’s biggest questions – Why are we here? What makes us human? How do we make a difference? Most humanities programs take an interdisciplinary approach, drawing from a variety of fields that may include art, classics, history, language, literature, philosophy, and religion. Some humanities degrees will encourage drawing broadly from many of these fields while others will encourage specialization and allow students to customize their program of study.
While there are some PhD in Humanities programs available, more schools offer a Master of Arts in Humanities, often emphasizing interdisciplinary studies. The MA Humanities degree could prepare a student interested in community involvement or leadership roles in his or her organization, particularly in the non-profit sector. Students interested in teaching and research may find a doctoral program a better fit for their interests.
You should consider different graduate humanities program formats available depending on what would best suit your needs. Some graduate programs in humanities may be part-time while others require a full-time commitment. An online program at a humanities graduate school may be best if you are looking for convenience while a campus option may be better if you want the face-to-face discussions and experience that many crave for a humanities degree.
You can filter your search by location to find a graduate school of humanities near you or worldwide. You can also search by degree level to find masters, doctoral or certificates in humanities.
