Bachelors in Humanities

About

Find out more information about Humanities

Humanities encompass academic disciplines that study human condition and the essence of what it means to be human in a fast changing world. Humanities are similar to liberal arts in many ways and the two terms are sometimes interchangeable. Many degree courses offered by humanities departments can also be listed as social sciences, because they deal with the study of human behaviour and society.

Bachelors and Masters in humanities cover a broad, interdisciplinary study of society and culture throughout history. Practitioners use methods that are primarily analytic, critical, or speculative to study subjects belonging to languages, literature, law, history, philosophy, religion, visual and performing arts, and others. Music studies also fit the field of humanities, as music is used to broaden capabilities of non-musicians by teaching skills such as concentration and listening.

Humanities degrees help students develop a broad understanding of cultural expression and improve their analytical and communication skills. Students can improve their understanding of society through satisfying their intellectual curiosity in subjects such as philosophy, art, history and literature with an emphasis on multiculturalism.
