Humanities

What is a humanities degree?

The field of humanities involves the study of the human condition. It uses qualitative methods that are primarily analytical, critical, or speculative, in contrast with the empirical approaches of the natural sciences.

Humanities is also the study of different cultural aspects – it analyzes the flaws in humankind and how it can be improved. These cultural aspects includes speech, knowledge, beliefs, arts, technologies, ideals, and rules. With a focus on these aspects, it examines and prescribes the type of behavior considered appropriate to an individual in his or her efforts to achieve the status of being a cultured human being. A cultured person is often thought to be refined and well versed in the arts, philosophy, and the languages.

Through the arts such as painting, sculpture, architecture, music, dance, literature, theatre, and cinema, the study of humanities also investigates fundamental human activities, sentiments, aspirations and opinions.
