LUMS - BA (Hons) Humanities

The humanities are academic disciplines that study the human condition, using methods that are primarily analytical,[citation needed] critical, or speculative, as distinguished from the mainly empirical approaches of the natural sciences. The humanities introduce us to people we have never met, places we have never visited, and ideas that may have never crossed our minds. The humanities that are also regarded as social sciences include history, anthropology, area studies, communication studies, cultural studies, law and linguistics. By showing how others have lived and thought about life, the humanities help us decide what is important in our own lives and what we can do to make them better. By connecting us with other people, they point the way to answers about what is right or wrong, or what is true to our heritage and our history. The humanities help us address the challenges we face together in our families, our communities, and as a nation.
The Humanities Program offers interdisciplinary courses in history, philosophy, and literature, with a focus on major aspects of the World humanistic tradition. In these courses, students examine the development of a wide variety of ideas and forms of expression that exert a major influence on modern World. The Humanities major offers a thorough and solid foundation in the key subjects of history, literature and philosophy and is traditionally considered the core of all knowledge. The objective is to develop the faculties of critical enquiry and rational investigation, as well as the capacity to read, analyse and evaluate texts, stances and arguments. The focus is on the education of the mind, to ensure that students are not just “technicians”, but above all, well-rounded human beings able to thrive in a world that requires precise conceptual tools to understand it. This program is designed to cultivate critical skills and an in-depth appreciation of historical, literary and philosophical texts, all grounded in current scholarship. The disciplines within the Humanities major reciprocally enrich one another, also providing foundations for strong interdisciplinary competence.
A number of our students are pursuing graduate studies in leading universities in United States and United Kingdom. The broad range of media industries has absorbed many of our students, as have the banking sector and multi-nationals.
