Academics at Prescott College
Humanities Master of Arts
The Limited-Residency Master of Arts Humanities Program provides opportunities for students to develop individually-designed, interdisciplinary or multidisciplinary studies in three major academic areas:
- Traditional Humanities (Arts and Letters)
- Cultural Studies
- Social Sciences
Humanities students are encouraged to develop individualized study areas that incorporate cultural, historical, philosophical, political, and social aspects of their disciplines and work.
Numerous options are possible within the large framework of philosophy, mythology, and spirituality, including religious studies, ecofeminism, cosmology, dialogical ecology, spiritual studies, comparative religions and theology. It is also possible within Humanities to focus a degree on some nonclinical areas in psychology such as wellness, gerontology, ecopsychology, depth psychology, forensic psychology, spiritual psychology or psychology of women.

All incoming Prescott College students are required to participate in New Student Orientation at the beginning of their first semester. During Orientation, you will receive information and experience activities designed to guide you through your specific program. Orientation is a time during which students and faculty from diverse cultures, different areas of study, and with a variety of expertise can come together to build friendships, exchange ideas, and develop cohorts or informal networks to support you through your distance learning journey. Students typically come away from Orientation inspired, energized and ready for the next phase of independent scholarship.
Limited Residency Master’s students attend colloquia on the Prescott campus during each Fall and Spring semester. Each Prescott Colloquium begins on Friday morning and goes until Sunday or Monday afternoon. During the colloquia, students connect with their cohort, make presentations, and contribute to ongoing dialogue and scholarship among peers and faculty. Colloquia also include workshops that address the nuts and bolts of the limited-residency programs and presentations from internationally known keynote speakers.
