Study Humanities

What does it mean to be human? How do we tell stories that matter? How can we make a difference?

These students are the creators, the philosophers, the thinkers and the activists.

From world history to creative writing and politics, studies in the humanities will equip you with a basis of knowledge and understanding to make a difference in any field.

The Humanities incorporate a range of study areas including Indigenous Knowledge and Philosophies, Creative Writing, Cultural Studies and Philosophy.
