Undergraduate Study

Why humanities? Our increasingly technical and scientific world is transforming rapidly, requiring people who can adapt quickly, possess strong communication skills, think creatively and critically; people who are multilingual, with a broad cultural base, and embrace lifelong learning. Studying humanities at a technological university, you will be well-positioned to address these challenges and create the future.
