Welcome to the
School of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences

Our graduates confront some of the most urgent challenges of the twenty-first century: they help us build successful and sustainable communities; resolve conflict and ensure human security; address the consequences of environmental and climate change; solve problems, seek truth and create change.

The Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences offer you the chance to study a broad range of disciplines, including politics, international relations, history, philosophy, sociology, anthropology, languages, literature, theatre, community and sustainable development, and tourism.

Our disciplines equip you with sought-after knowledge and skills and our graduates have high employability rates as a result. Our flexible degrees help you study the disciplines you love the most and can be combined with other programs to help you build the career you’re looking for.

Most importantly, a degree in the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences provides graduates with the skills and qualities needed to meet future challenges: analytical and critical thinking, innovation, complex problem solving, leadership, social influence and reasoning.
