Mission

Mission

The mission of the Office of Humanities is to promote teaching, scholarship, and research in the health humanities.

  • We develop and support humanities initiatives at the University that foster skills in critical thinking, analysis, observation, perspective taking, reflection, communication, compassion and self-care in MUSC students.
  • We encourage scholarship and research that investigates the role health humanities play in improving health professions education and the health outcomes of individuals and communities.
  • We collaborate on initiatives across the institution and in the community that engage narratives as a means of education and healing.

Vision

Our goal is to integrate evidence-based humanities content into health science education to teach our students the knowledge and skills they need to promote the best outcomes for the individuals and communities they will serve.
