Arts, Humanities, and Renaissance Studies
Our faculty supports the arts, not only as a tool for your own personal growth, but for healing and strengthening communities in conflict. Our arts-for-peace emphasis is found nowhere else. Be inspired to use your creativity to influence positive change.
Many of my art and art history professors have, over the years, evolved into much more than teachers for me. They are truly my mentors, not only on a personal level, but also as professionals and artists.
Find out what it is like to be so engaged in classroom conversation that you lose track of time. Our students find themselves approaching interdisciplinary courses in history, philosophy, and literature with open, creative minds.
Seeing how much my MBC professors loved English literature … I recognized my own destiny. I knew that I would not be satisfied doing anything with my life other than teaching English literature. I would not be pursuing my dream of becoming a professor if they had not pushed me to see something I didn’t notice at first.
Few colleges offer the same depth and breadth of study in the Elizabethan era, the works of William Shakespeare, and the performance of Renaissance literature. Learn to act, teach, direct, manage backstage, and conduct research while following our five-year program to earn a master of letters.
Research is radically different here … It’s all part of our larger commitment to helping our students take the 'next step' in their professional careers.
