MARANATHA DEPARTMENT OF HUMANITIES

A NEW WAY FORWARD

A Humanities program specifically tailored for you.

 

Overview

The Humanities programs at Maranatha Baptist University will challenge you to engage with your culture and to be a voice for truth.

These programs include English, Humanities, Digital Media, and Communication Arts.

Know the Culture, Share the Truth

In each of these programs, you will explore what it means to be a human being made in the image of God. You’ll also develop strong skills in communication—including writing, research, and speech.

You’ll develop qualities that top employers are looking for, such as critical thinking, the ability to adapt quickly in a changing world, and a sense of ethical responsibility. You’ll also be thoroughly prepared for graduate school

Flexibility

One advantage of our programs is their flexibility. You will have a myriad of options for electives and open credit hours, allowing you to tailor your program to your own goals.

Internships and Capstone Experiences

Each of our humanities programs prepares you for a vocational internship or a capstone experience during your senior year. You will either complete an internship in a vocational field of your choice, such as business, publishing, photography, drama, or art, or you will complete a capstone project such overseeing a campus play, creating a photography exhibit, a research presentation on a current issue, or a graduate-level scholarly project.

 Lifelong Learning

Overall, the Maranatha humanities programs are designed to help you become a lifelong learner who makes a difference in your culture and effectively shares the truth.
