MUSC music group plays at Humanitas reception


Humanitas is a literary journal of the Medical University of South Carolina. It is comprised of works presented by the MUSC community. Anyone with an MUSC badge is invited to submit.

Humanitas is calling ALL members of the MUSC community from all colleges/departments/professions to submit their works of art and literature for the upcoming volume. Humanitas is a campus-wide publication that features paintings, drawings, photography, prose, poetry, music, etc. from all members of the MUSC community who wish to submit their work. Each submission will then be judged by a diverse editorial board who will cast their votes on the submissions; this process will ultimately decide the works that become published. Humanitas features works that are both within the realm of healthcare as well as those pertaining to many other themes or sources of inspiration.

As an MUSC student-edited journal, we publish pieces that reflect MUSC’s values of diversity, inclusion, and respect. We do not publish pieces that explicitly or implicitly condone violence or that contain discriminatory or derogatory content.

Humanitas Editorial Board

Consisting of student volunteers from across the six colleges, the Editorial Board participates in a blind voting process to help determine which submissions will appear in the annual issue of Humanitas.
