As the study of the human experience, Humanities classes include offerings under the following disciplines and prefixes: Humanities (HUMS), Music (MUSC) and Philosophy (PHIL). Students incorporating these classes into their experience at MCC have an opportunity to connect to the ways history, art, religion, literature have been recorded and develop independent thinking, social and cultural competency, information literacy, interpersonal and professional communication, along with critical reasoning. Humanities Studies faculty offer classes that meet the general education requirements for communication, critical thinking/creativity and social/cultural awareness.
