The School of Arts and Humanities is committed to interdisciplinary graduate programs that investigate the linkages between the arts and the humanities by fusing critical with creative thinking, theoretical with practical endeavors.
All our graduate programs are designed to provide students a flexible, interdisciplinary context within which to pursue a program of study built on connections among specific courses and areas of concentration. Within the specific degree plans, each student plans a program of studies in consultation with an assigned advisor.
Please refer to the section below that pertains to the date you began your degree.
Since the School combines the humanities and the arts, many faculty members are engaged in the creation and performance of artistic works in creative writing and the visual and performing arts. In addition, five centers and institutes affiliated with the School promote interdisciplinary research:
- the Center for Translation Studies
- the Center for Holocaust Studies
- the Center for Asian Studies
- the Center for Values in Medicine, Science and Technology
- the Center for the Interdisciplinary Study of Museums
The graduate programs in the School of Arts and Humanities share several features: a high level of engagement between faculty and students; a campus environment that fosters a community of scholars; financial support that allows concentration on academics; and demonstrated success in educating graduates for careers in academia as well as the non-profit and corporate sectors.
