Humanities and Art field encompasses academic disciplines that study human condition and the essence of what it means to be human in the fast changing world. Humanities are similar to liberal arts in many ways and the two terms are sometimes used interchangeably. Academic programmes in humanities cover a broad, interdisciplinary study of society and culture throughout history. Practitioners use methods that are primarily analytic, critical, or speculative. Studies of language, literature, law, history, philosophy, religion, visual and performing arts are among the study subjects in humanities field. Studies in music are also considered to be in the field, where music is used to broaden capabilities of non-musicians by teaching skills such as concentration and listening.
Studies in humanities help students develop a broad understanding of cultural expression and improve their analytical and communication skills. Students can improve their understanding of society through satisfying their intellectual curiosity in subjects such as philosophy, art, history and literature with an emphasis on multiculturalism.
