A Fully-Online Community of Scholars

Signum University is a nonprofit, digitally-native educational institution focused on providing affordable education, training, and mentorship opportunities in a collaborative remote-learning environment.

The Master of Arts in Language and Literature is our premier degree program, first established in 2011. Unlike many other graduate programs that separate language and literature studies, Signum University provides a comprehensive course of study in analyzing great literature that emphasizes the important role language plays in the stories we read, hear, and tell. This rigorous credit program includes a Master’s Thesis demonstrating original scholarship.

We also offer a rich variety of non-degree programs:

  • Writer’s Forge helps people improve their writing skills with one-to-one guidance and feedback.
  • Signum Academy provides high-quality extracurricular education to children and teenagers.
  • SPACE provides fully online access to a serious but low-impact arena for learning, whether you are interested in building a systematic course of study or just pursuing eclectic interests.
  • Signum Path supports professionals wanting to develop their foundational skills, or organizations wanted to upskill their workforce.
  • Finally, we offer no-cost online classes and lectures to everyone through the Mythgard Institute.
