Board of Directors Approves the New Master of Arts in Engaged and Public Humanities
Posted in Announcements
Georgetown’s board of directors approved the new Master of Arts in Engaged and Public Humanities at its June meeting.
The newly approved Master of Arts in Engaged and Public Humanities, through the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, is designed to train students deeply in the humanities and the applicability of this area in diverse settings both within and outside of higher education.
The program will give graduates the ability to pursue complex research projects in a wide range of areas, and the creative vision and training to bring their expertise to bear on a variety of problems common to the human experience.
Core courses in the history and culture of the public humanities – combined with internships or field research at institutions as varied as the FBI, the Aspen Institute and the Folger Shakespeare Library – will prepare students for the many positions that value humanities expertise.
