In History, Philosophy and Interdisciplinary Studies in the Humanities, we strive to understand human existence. We explore the past and the present, and consider what the future might hold. As a student of these disciplines, you develop skills in clear thinking, effective argumentation, cogent interpretation, and persuasive written and spoken communication. Combining study of the humanities with these 21st century skills, a degree in History, Philosophy or Interdisciplinary Studies in the Humanities is a strong complement to a major in the sciences or health professions.
