Delving into the classics
Want to sharpen your critical and creative reasoning skills, learn to read and comprehend complex material, and communicate more effectively? The Humanities major with a Letters track focuses on the extensive, fascinating world of history and literature. (You will select either history or literature as your specialty, plus a concentration or minor in another discipline.) Ideal for students considering graduate school for careers in law, history, or other fields, the Letters track provides a solid platform for developing skills of rhetoric, debate, reading, writing, and logical thinking. The dedicated instructors of Maranatha’s Baptist Christian Literature degree program foster an appreciation for diverse cultures and values that have influenced civilization throughout time, while emphasizing the importance of the Judeo-Christian foundations of Western culture.
Taking it further
Justin Jones (’07) chose Maranatha for its regional accreditation, but loved it for the opportunities, from singing groups to student body leadership. His 4.0 GPA led to scholarship offers from law schools. He turned down those offers and spent three years teaching English in China. He returned to the U.S. in the summer of 2010 to work as a business analyst in Oklahoma City, where he is actively involved in his church and engaged in outreach to the international refugee community. Justin is passionate about seeing the Gospel affect all aspects of life—including business practices—and plans to transition into management consulting after getting his MBA. "My time in China confirmed my desire to see the Gospel directly impact lives outside the walls of a church building, and I am excited about doing that through business," Jones said.
Our faculty knows English
After teaching at Maranatha for over 20 years, Mrs. Angela Morris knows teaching isn’t just about classroom instruction.
“Some of my favorite times are when students stop by my office to talk to me, not merely about English, but also about their burdens about friends, or home, or their own struggles.”
