The Humanities program of the University of Asia and the Pacific (UA&P) is a holistic program that aims to build on the students’ passion for history, philosophy, literature, and the arts. This field of study focuses on man—his motivations, his capabilities, his limitations, and those that are universal in him throughout human history.
The Master of Arts in Humanities students share a common liberal arts curriculum with the A.B. students during their first three years in UA&P. On their third year, they will begin to take specialized subjects in the Humanities. Also, in their fifth year, they are expected to write a thesis based on their chosen field of specialization, either History or Literature. Upon graduation, they are expected to be familiar with concepts specific to their chosen field of study on top of having a good grasp of the different theories belonging to the disciplines of the Humanities.
