Humanities, psychology and social sciences


What does it mean to be human? What makes a community? And how can societies tackle the world’s most pressing social, political and environmental issues? 

From the intricacies of the human brain to the challenges of a global economy, our degrees in humanities and social sciences let you tackle the big questions.

Make a global impact

Passionate about how the world works? Want to help drive social change? With a degree in arts, international relations or social science, you’ll learn how politics and the economy influence individuals and societies, and how communities can work together on a local or global scale.

Create change in your community

Want to help individuals lead healthier, happier lives? With a degree in psychology, counselling or human services, you’ll learn the physical, social and emotional drivers of human wellbeing, and build the practical skills you need to make a difference – either at home or internationally.
