Welcome to Humanities

Humanities, with their disciplines of location, selection, classification and evaluation of material in a wide variety of forms have an important role to fill. They give knowledge, understanding; method of procedure; the making of informed choice; and the formulation of critical and constructive questions. The testing of values form a background of informed opinion brings a measure of understanding to the modern world.

Employers recognise the ability to locate, gather, select, interpret and communicate findings as integral bi-products of the study of the Humanities, and subsequently, look favourably on such applicants.

"[A man] must learn to understand the motives of human beings, their illusions, and their sufferings in order to acquire a proper relationship to individual fellow-men and to the community. These precious things ... primarily constitutes and preserves culture. This is what I have in mind when I recommend the humanities as important."
