School of Humanities

Dr. Jacky Dumas, Associate Dean

The School of Humanities houses the following departments: English, Communication and Media Studies, and Modern Foreign Language. Our varied and in-depth curricula provides the best of what liberal arts and humanities have to offer while also incorporating active professional development for our students. In addition, we provide numerous opportunities for engaging in the respective disciplines as well as creating lifelong learners by means of our student organizations and programming. Our distinctive learning experiences include study abroad, an award-winning Speech and Debate team, Cru Films, Deaf Awareness events, The Bells, literary festivals and workshops, distinguished speakers, and service to our communities.

Housed under the School of Humanities are three multidisciplinary minors which provide complimentary resources, training, and learning opportunities to almost any major at UMHB. The Writing Minor caters to students who value written communication as a vital component to their professional goals. The Classical Humanities Minor accommodates students who are interested in graduate or professional study. The Applied Humanities Minor engages students who desire to work/study abroad or desire to foster global perspectives.
