BACHELOR OF ARTS | HUMANITIES

Overview | Humanities

The Humanities Major offers the opportunity to create a degree that matches their God-given talents and interests. Students craft their major around their interests in the areas of psychology, history, literature, language, and writing. Through the minor program, students build on the foundation that the major provides through any of MBU’s 30 minors. Additionally, the degree has fifteen open elective hours that allow students to explore other areas of interest. As an element of the program’s flexibility, students can earn a master’s degree in Bible at the same time that they are earning their bachelor’s degree, thus paving the way to seminary for those interested in preaching, missions, or other church ministry.

 

Program Outcomes

  • Students are able to demonstrate critical thinking skills.
  • Students are able to do scholarly research.
  • Students are able to communicate clearly to a range of audiences in writing or in speaking.
  • Students are able to communicate the characteristics of Western culture through interaction with literature, history, philosophy, and apologetics.
