Welcome to the Master of Arts in Comparative Humanities
Brandeis University’s Master of Arts Program in Comparative Humanities (MACH) offers students the opportunity to pursue rigorous humanistic studies within cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural frameworks. Our synergistic one-year graduate program focuses on avenues of inquiry that bridge intellectual traditions, geographies, nationalities, historical periods, and/or vernaculars. This unique interdisciplinary paradigm facilitates the development of a multi-faceted approach to language, literature, and culture.
Housed in Brandeis’ resplendent new Mandel Center for the Humanities, the comparative humanities program draws upon the strengths of faculty in fields ranging from film to philosophy, history to the fine arts, and literature to women’s and gender studies, with the potential for connections to the natural sciences and other fields. The program brings together a cadre of students committed to exploring problems that require interdisciplinary understanding and to the richness of multiple cultural perspectives. The program also draws upon our close connections with well-known academic, cultural, and research resources in the Boston area, making Brandeis an ideal location for securing local internships, as well as research and career opportunities.
