Humanities disciplines are central at Massey University, bringing together the many different aspects of what it means to be human. We ask fundamental questions about society and culture and examine our individual and collective achievements, fascinations and follies in both the past and present.
The disciplines we offer uniquely develop valuable skills in research, analysis, critical thinking and communication.
Learning about and studying languages and cultures is an excellent preparation for participating in our increasingly interconnected world. An understanding of where we have come from, and our fundamental beliefs, is developed in many of our other disciplines.
The School of Humanities has a presence on all three Massey campuses: Auckland, Manawatū and Wellington.
The School of Humanities was formed in June 2012 to incorporate the previous School of History, Philosophy and Classics and the School of Linguistics and International Languages.
