School of Humanities and Social Inquiry

School of Humanities and Social Inquiry

Students in the School of Humanities and Social Inquiry are trained to think historically, philosophically and politically about the world, societies and cultures. Working alongside and guiding you in your studies are experts in their fields who will introduce you to cutting edge ideas, new ways of thinking and global perspectives. You will hone your skills of interpretation (nothing is ever just black and white), and you will gain experience in analysing and synthesising complex ideas; skills that are essential in real world problem solving and highly valuable to a wide range of employers. Every ‘real world’ problem today has a cultural and social dimension that can be understood using the skills you will gain doing one of our degrees.
