A degree from UMKC School of Humanities and Social Sciences provides a well-rounded curriculum that gives students a thorough understanding of the world in which we live.

Our students work alongside curators at world-renowned museums, cover stories for local news outlets and radio stations, intern for professional sports teams and gain experience at top companies. Getting involved and making connections outside of the classroom not only makes for a more dynamic college experience, but also helps our students develop professionally.

Our alumni can be spotted at these Kansas City employers:

  • The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art
  • The National WWI Museum
  • Fox 4KC
  • Garmin International
  • Hallmark
  • Kansas City Royals
