Humanities students in walkway


Your support today can shape a brighter future tomorrow.

Through the humanities, we learn about the world around us, ethics, human rights and issues that relate to – and sometimes challenge – our own beliefs, values and assumptions. We learn about what goes into creating art, how language evolves over time and how history is made, recorded and understood.

We are equipped with the tools to explore the enduring question of what it means to be human in an ever-changing world. Humanities fortifies a global perspective, broadens our intellectual foundation and teaches us to develop creative and critical thinking skills in order to become problem solvers, engaged citizens and the thought leaders of tomorrow. It is an essential education for the heart and mind.
