Study in the Global Humanities Program delivers to graduate students the means to achieve a broad and sophisticated understanding of human culture throughout history and around the globe, primarily through seminar work and opportunities for workshops, encounters with visiting scholars, and internships.
In completing the 36-unit program of the master’s degree in Global Humanities, students will develop skills of critical thinking, analysis, research, and both written and verbal skills through seminar discussions, reading, presentations, research papers, digital communications, and thesis and internship options.
Seminars combine theory and practice, providing students with the critical and analytical tools that enable us to address “real world” problems, in readings, discussion, and projects. Seminars may be supplemented by internship and practicum opportunities. The program also sponsors regular informal seminars and lectures, which will address topics and issues central to the global humanities, open to all global humanities faculty and students.
The following graduate-level courses are offered in Global Humanities. Graduate-level courses are numbered 500-899. You can view course descriptions in the Graduate Catalog.
