Humanities partnerships

Our goal is to ensure a Curtin education remains relevant and valued both by students and employers. By aligning our teaching with the needs of industry, we contribute to the knowledge economy of our nation and future industry leaders.

We have partnered with business, industry organisations, government and the not-for-profit sector to develop fieldwork education opportunities. Our fieldwork partners play an integral role in our students’ education by providing quality mentoring and supervision of students.
