Humanities are academic disciplines where you will explore how individuals and diverse societies, past and present, make meaning and assign value. You will learn how histories, cultural works, languages and ideas shape diverse communities and relations between them. You will discover and design ways of understanding diverse human experiences, including conflict and inequality, by examining cultural records. Humanities help one to understand and relate to the increasingly global world in a positive and constructive manner.
