Humanities Institute

Masters in Health Humanities

(Updated 7/10/2020) The Humanities Institute is currently developing a Master of Arts degree in Humanities, Health, and Medicine, with a planned launch date of Fall 2022. Please check back here for announcements and further information.

We are delighted to report that the UT Graduate Assembly approved our proposal for a new Master of Arts degree in Humanities, Health, and Medicine (HHM). The new degree proposal is now awaiting approval from the Board of Regents and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. If those bodies approve, we will begin recruiting students for the Master’s program in fall 2021 and plan to welcome our first cohort in fall 2022. We are very grateful to all of the UT faculty who helped with the proposal and have agreed to teach in the new program. In addition, we are collaborating with Dell Medical School to prepare a dual-degree proposal to allow their students to enroll in and complete the HHM Master’s program and receive an MA along with their MD degree when they graduate.
