The Master of Arts Program in the Humanities (MAPH) at the University of Chicago is a rigorous, one-year graduate program that allows students to focus within a specific academic discipline—such as Art History or English—or to explore their interdisciplinary interests. Our students refine their intellectual ideas throughout the year, a process which for most culminates in a master’s thesis supervised by a University of Chicago faculty member. MAPH is excellent preparation for students who wish to continue their studies in a PhD program, enter a new professional field, or return to their current career with more developed writing and research skills.
