Arts & Humanities

Message from the Dean

The department of Arts is focused on research, engagement with the community and delivering a true contribution to its immediate environment. The faculty of arts, however small, offers outstanding programmes with leading course material in its fields. With one of the first faculties to really emphasize its study into neuroscience, we aim to be world leading.

Throughout our courses we aim to contribute to the development of society, making a real difference in the lives of those we come into contact with. A Bachelors of Arts is not just a degree, it’s a key to wellness sharing. This degree gives you the key to enlighten the path of those you come into contact with. Whether it is sharing a story of importance or offering guidance to someone in need, we aim to give you the tools needed to be of help in whatever society you choose.
