Humanities Degrees for the 21st Century
What does it mean to be human?
Explore our present, past – and future – through literature, the social sciences, philosophy, and history. Look at the variety of human cultures, experiences, and beliefs from new perspectives. There are so many ways of seeing the world and trying to understand how it works!
Creative disruption isn’t just for the tech world.

Learn to think both analytically and creatively – and to communicate your ideas with clarity and style.
Literacy, analytical thinking, and persuasive communication are skills you’ll depend on wherever your future leads. They’re skills that can’t be automated, and that help you to thrive through change. They’re the “soft skills” that enable you to be effective wherever people can benefit from thinking more creatively and understanding each other better.
