Purpose

The mission of the College of Humanities is to provide learning opportunities for students 1) to understand and appreciate the human experience through the study of literature, language, history, political science, and communication, and 2) to develop and utilize communication and critical thinking skills. These opportunities are provided through the degree programs housed in the College and through a robust contribution to the general education program of UMHB. In its support of the University’s mission statement, the College’s academic programs emphasize “academic excellence, personal attention, and broad-based scholarship” while preparing students for “leadership, service, and faith-informed discernment.”
