Explore what it means to be human from a variety of disciplinary perspectives
This program examines the history and learning principles of the Humanities, and explores how critical thinking occurs inside and across disciplines. Students consider the complexity of today's world and engage in intellectual debates on the big ideas and major concepts underpinning the Humanities, including power, language, storytelling, and representation.
This program provides innovative research skills in Humanities disciplines, informed by traditional and new perspectives. It also highlights new awareness of the relevance of digital research tools in the Humanities. It fosters a learning environment that enables students to develop skills in problem solving, making convincing arguments, and intercultural awareness.
At the conclusion of this program, students will have developed written, oral and digital research and communication skills that are vital for success in the Bachelor of Arts and a range of potential career paths. They will also have demonstrated foundational understanding of the role of the Humanities in knowledge creation and ethical problem solving.
