Students choosing the special concentration in the M.A. in Humanities Program will have the opportunity to both design and name their own course of study. For this concentration area, students work with the M.A. in Humanities Program Director to select five courses from among the graduate curriculum offered at Wilson and use those five courses as the basis of their M.A. degree. These courses are not limited to the Humanities subject areas, but can be pulled from a wide variety of graduate coursework that Wilson offers in over a dozen fields, including
|Creative Writing||Global Studies|
|Educational Technology and Management||Philosophy|
Once the concentration is set, the student submits the degree to the College’s Committee on Academic Procedures for approval. Once approved, the student’s M. A. in Humanities degree will bear the name of the concentration that the student has created. This process must be finalized prior to the completion of the student’s third course in the program.
Students pair their five-course concentration with HUM 510: Methods and Materials of Humanities Research and the M.A. in Humanities two-semester thesis sequence. Students will also take two elective courses from the available M.A. in Humanities curriculum.
* All M.A. in Humanities program candidates are required to complete the following:
All course work and degree requirements must be completed within six years of taking the first class in the M.A. Program. Appeals for extension of the six-year limit must be submitted in writing to the Program Director.
