Why Humanities is Important

A high-quality humanities education should inspire pupils to have a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Teaching should equip pupils with knowledge about diverse people and places both past and present along with the ability to ask perceptive questions and think critically.

Humanities students can:

  • make a concise report
  • handle data
  • ask questions and find answers
  • make decisions about an issue
  • analyse material
  • organise themselves
  • think creatively and independently
Humanities students are:

  • good communicators
  • spatially aware
  • socially, economically and environmentally aware
  • problem solvers
  • good team players
  • computer literate
  • well rounded, flexible thinkers

Potential career paths for students who have studied a humanities subject include; law, environmental health, armed forces, police force, architecture, archaeology, media, leisure and tourism, surveying, journalism, non-government organisations, teaching and many more.
