Multidisciplinary humanities

Why study humanities?

Humanities explores subjects such as history, philosophy, religion, and English literature. Studying humanities helps expand your knowledge of human cultures and helps us understand what brings people together and what differentiates one another. It explores what it means to be human in an ever-changing world.
