Master of Humanities/ Master of Social Sciences Program


Are you the sort of person who sees the world from multiple perspectives? Do you wonder if you'll ever find others who want to know what the connections are between philosophy and science or art and political action or medicine and ethics? Do you need flexibility in your graduate plans?

The Master of Humanities and Master of Social Science programs (MHMSS) at the University of Colorado Denver welcome students whose interests are diverse, who want to look at ideas in varied modes. Both the MH and the MSS programs, offer students the opportunity to take courses from multiple disciplines at UCD and craft a study plan that bridges the traditional boundaries of a university's departments. Through this interdisciplinary curriculum they develop innovative thinking and special, critical and analytic skills to prepare them for a rapidly changing world.

Consider the Master of Humanities or Master of Social Science program at UCD: The best UCD offers, under one umbrella.​
