One of the most valuable things about studying humanities is that students gain essential knowledge and understanding about humans, our cultures, our stories, past and present, and the world we live in.
Studying within the Humanities Department helps students to develop the essential lifelong learning skills that ultimately employers seek such as critical thinking, communication skills, interpersonal and teamwork skills, and analytical and problem-solving skills.
