Humanities, MA

Cultivate your knowledge of the great works in the tradition of Western thought through the MA in humanities. A wide range of graduate courses are offered by various departments with the intention of giving students the opportunity to pursue interests in different fields without committing to earning a degree in any one field alone, and to encourage the careful reading of a limited number of primary texts.

Study the great works in the tradition of Western thought.

Design your own personalized curriculum. 

The humanities graduate program is flexible and encourages careful reading. Design your own personalized curriculum around a core of three special courses devoted to the reading of seminal works of western thought. To this core, add courses according to your interests, either in one or two concentrations, or in one or two historical periods for a deep and broad educational foundation.

Several courses can be completed online. 

Teaching Excellence 

Over the past fifty years, the faculty of the University of Dallas have inspired generations of teachers through their passion and profound knowledge of the classical tradition. With rigorous liberal arts programs at the undergraduate, master’s and doctoral levels, UD’s faculty are among the most accomplished and experienced classical educators in the country. 

In addition to offering concentrations in a variety of liberal arts disciplines, the Braniff Graduate School offers a Concentration in Classical Education and a Certificate of Classical Learning for current or prospective teachers, for those seeking to become headmasters, and for those who desire to pursue advanced graduate studies while expanding their teaching skills.
