The Humanities cover a broad spectrum of subject areas and, when applied to school settings, we often associate the term with the following subjects: History, Geography, Religious Studies, Politics & Citizenship. So why do the Humanities matter and why should students today choose a Humanities subject?
Today more than ever it is crucial for all learners to become well-rounded, culturally responsive global citizens, able to understand and interrogate the world around them, and their place in it.
In a time when our planet faces enormous challenges, the ability to interpret and analyse data, problem-solve, communicate and work effectively as part of a team has never been so important. There are so many skills that are acquired whilst studying a humanities subject, helping learners build foundations for a successful future.
