The Humanities department offers a range of subjects that concentrate on developing students' ability to understand themselves and others. The study of Humanities promotes the understanding of societies, events, movements and developments that have shaped humanity. It allows students to develop an appreciation for how the world and its people have changed, by investigating and evaluating the consequences of human interactions with the world across multiple contexts.
Through studying Humanities, students will:
- Pursue broad questions such as: why the world and its population are located, co-exist and act the way they do?
- Develop knowledge, understanding and appreciation of the past and the forces that shape societies' futures.
- Develop critical thinking and inquiry skills.
