Gain the skills needed for careers in our global and diverse world: broad global
cultural and historical awareness, interdisciplinary problem-solving, communication
and language skills, critical thinking, and human-centered approaches to "real world"
Towson University’s master’s program in global humanities fosters interdisciplinary
inquiry into ideas related to the human condition. 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.
