Department of Humanities and Communications

Communication is essential. It's the very basis of civilization in building societies, learning, working and is key to all aspects of life.

It's no surprise then, that studying communication and the humanities—society, culture and language—offers an exceptionally broad array of career paths and opportunities. Majoring or minoring in a liberal arts field like the humanities will prepare you for most any field, as you will have developed essential creative and critical thinking skills, as well as the tools to communicate your ideas in an engaging and compelling way.

Lincoln University of Missouri's Department of Humanities and Communications offers you the chance to study these subjects in small and dynamic classes taught by an expert and dedicated faculty. You can explore literature and creative writing in our English Department, prepare for a career covering the news in our School of Journalism, or develop proficiency in a second language in our Foreign Languages Program.

In each department, you'll learn essential skills to think through and discuss a variety of issues, preparing yourself to apply a similar range of thought to a number of careers, including teaching, marketing, advertising, business, translation, reporting, producing, editing and countless more.
