In the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, our questions are the big questions of life:
To help answer those questions, our research and teaching cover three areas:
Humanities encourage you to examine all that it means to be human, including language, ethics, history and culture.
Social sciences immerse you in the study of society and human behaviour.
Education prepares you to help others with lifelong learning.
This range and depth make the College of Humanities and Social Sciences a vibrant place to delve into the past and its traditions, and springboard into the future and its new possibilities.

Our highly qualified academic staff are passionate about teaching, research and people. They come from many different backgrounds and all parts of the world, but share a common goal: to provide an excellent education to all our students.
The College of Humanities and Social Sciences, Te Kura Pūkenga Tangata, was formed in 1998 from a merger of the Faculty of Social Sciences and the Faculty of Humanities. In 2013, the Institute of Education was established in the college, replacing the College of Education.
