Find your future now at MassBay Community College
Located on both our Wellesley Hills and Framingham campuses, the Humanities Division provides students with an exceptional learning experience. The humanities have always been at the core of the college experience, providing students with the skills, knowledge, and flexibility to take any path in their education, careers, and lives.
We are committed to offering students a high-quality liberal arts education that:
- Prepares students for successful transfer to 4-year colleges;
- Provides enriched learning experiences that promote student learning;
- Develops in students the skills and abilities for life-long learning;
- Promotes active citizenship in a rapidly changing world.
A humanities degree opens a world of possibilities. Our degree provides a balanced education in humanities, foreign languages, and writing & literature. In addition, our division supports English acquisition through an extensive ESL program. Students gain a broad understanding of the world while developing their abilities in writing, critical thinking and problem-solving.
Since our program is the equivalent of the freshman and sophomore years of a Bachelor of Arts program at a four-year college, a major focus of Humanities at MassBay is preparing our students for transfer to four-year colleges to continue their education. MassBay has a number of transfer agreements with public and private four-year colleges and universities and our students have an excellent record of successful transfer to a wide-range of schools. In addition, our degree programs meet the MassTransfer requirements.
A humanities education prepares you to be a life-long learner. While your technical skills may quickly become obsolete due to the rapid pace of technology, the skills you learn in the humanities will always be relevant in your professional career and personal life.
