Humanities for Students: Our vision

The Undergraduate Humanities Initiative promotes a vision of local and global engagement. “Humanities” is a multi-faceted term that encompasses innovation, education and culture. We are committed to the growth and development of the Humanities by encouraging undergraduates to take bold strides beyond their academic studies. We aim to open up discussion on interdisciplinary issues and to take a look at The Humanities in literature, media and society.
