Humanities fosters an understanding of human values and attitudes, past and present, and looks at the way in which society is organised, develops and changes.
The following subjects are taught in the humanities faculty: geography, history, philosophy and ethics, psychology, and extended project research.
Courses in humanities help students to develop an understanding of important issues affecting humanity. Topics focus on people as individuals, groups and communities.
- Patterns of Family Life
- Prejudice and Persecution
- Culture and Beliefs
- Conflict and Co-operation
- Environmental Issues
Students are involved in many different activities including visits, observation, surveys, interviews and the use of film and tape-recorded material. An important aim of Humanities is to learn to find, select and interpret different types of information, and to be able to present coherent arguments.
