The Maryland Humanities Council (MHC) is a nonprofit that creates and supports educational experiences in the humanities that inspire all Marylanders to embrace lifelong learning, exchange ideas openly, and enrich their communities.

The humanities include literature, history, philosophy, archaeology, languages, comparative religion, jurisprudence, ethics, art history, architecture, and aspects of the social sciences. These humanities disciplines are tools that can help us to explore what makes us human, connect with others, and discover meaning and richness in our lives and in our communities.
