Humanities (MA)

Pursue your degree and apply your unique perspective as you take-on an interdisciplinary approach to the fields of history, sociology, philosophy and cultural studies.

Overview

Students can choose either the thesis stream or the course-based stream with a major research paper. A further option is the Practicum, in which a student works in a community organization, all the while engaged in “reading” that organization as a “text” embedded in a larger social and cultural context.
