Succeeding professionally today requires more than just training. In the TU Global
Humanities MA program, you will gain the knowledge and skills you need to excell in our diverse and complex world.
Global Humanities graduate students address global issues through the frame of cultural
and historical understanding, interdisciplinary problem-solving, and human-centered approaches to "real world"
Towson University’s master’s program in global humanities fosters positive change
through interdisciplinary inquiry into human culture, ideas, and practices. With its
global focus on humanitarian and cultural issues, the program prepares graduates to
serve as effective, ethical leaders and engaged citizens.
This program is a quality and affordable graduate degree for students pursuing careers
in non-profit and NGO work, social justice and community engagement, education, arts
management, economics, communications and public relations, and government career
sectors. Students also use the degree as a stepping stone to competitive Ph.D. programs
in humanities-related fields.
Through the study of global humanities, you’ll gain the cultural and historical awareness
necessary to understand complex issues of global interactions, not only in the contemporary
moment but as things change over time. You’ll learn to negotiate successfully and
humanely the increased diversity of our world as it changes in interrelated ways,
through economic exchange, war, the mass movement of refugees and migrants, terrorism,
and climate disruption.
WHY TOWSON UNIVERSITY?
Students receive considerable personal attention as most classes have fewer than 16
The program’s small size makes it ideal for students who wish to orient the program
offerings toward their own needs and interests.
You’ll study with a diverse, internationally-known faculty who are actively engaged
in humanities-oriented research and community outreach.
Towson University’s proximity to Baltimore City and Washington, D.C., provides students
with a wide range of opportunities for involvement (and perhaps an internship) in
non-profit, government, or arts programs, community engagement, or cultural organizations.
Priority will be given to students whose application and transcripts have been received
by April 1 for fall and November 1 for spring admission. Students who miss the priority deadline may contact the program director via email
at jballengee AT_TOWSONto inquire if space is still available for the forthcoming semester.
