Arts and humanities

Study what makes you human, artistic and creative

Draw on a rewarding career. Give back, politicize or design an artistic, passionate life in the arts and humanities with a human touch.

From photography and policy, history and human rights, to languages and animation—an arts degree gives you more choices to connect, communicate and create.

Get a feel for what brings communities together, work for an NGO or become a humanitarian leader. Dig into historic detail, philosophise about the future or uncover cultural heritage and artefacts. Document, articulate and collaborate.

There’s more to arts and humanities than a palette. Find your niche and enrich yourself and the lives of others.
