Humanities, psychology and social work are areas of study that focus on human society, individuals and their relationships, human culture and the contemporary world. These areas explore how humans recognise, record and debate human practises, meanings and values, including the human condition and how society operates.
Specifically, humanities, psychology and social work incorporate disciplines such as psychology, social work, human services, creative writing, history, geography, environment, professional communication and journalism, leading to a diverse range of potential careers.
Study in humanities, psychology and social work develops lifelong skills that can be useful in all careers and in day-to-day life, such as critical thinking, research and investigation, communication, design and planning. For example, many of Australia’s politicians have studied similar programs prior to entering public office.
