DEPARTMENT OF HUMANITIES

Overview

The humanities department of Maranatha Baptist University is designed to challenge you, both in school and beyond, to pursue Christ and culture. Our desire is to see you engage with your culture, activate critical thinking, and exercise your voice for truth.

The degree programs in the department of humanities include English, Humanities, Digital Media, and Communication Arts. Each program presents its strengths in a different facet of our culture and provides numerous opportunities for you to gain hands-on experience as you study.

Details

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

One advantage of the humanities programs is their flexibility. You will have numerous options for electives and open credit hours in your degree, allowing you to tailor your degree program to fit your goals and the calling God has placed on your heart.

If your goal is graduate school, you’ll be thoroughly prepared for that as well.

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.

Excellence

These experiences will prepare you for applying your studies, as you set out into the life God has for you. Ultimately, they will help you become a lifelong learner, as you seek to make a difference in the world and speak the truth with excellence for God’s glory.
