North West University NWU Faculty of Humanities – See Details Below:

In the Faculty of Humanities, students are encouraged to understand and explain human experiences in its totality.  Can you imagine the diversity and complexity of people’s experiences in our local and global worlds today, and how poor understanding of the experiences of people can lead to disastrous consequences?  When you become part of the Faculty of Humanities at the North-West University, you will join a group of bold students and staff who study and work towards solutions for the most important issues of the day like:

  • How can better public policy help manage the delivery of services in South Africa – social grants, water, electricity or other services that people expect from government?
  • Does social media cause people to write poorly or make us stupid enough to fall for fake news?
  • How does being a multilingual society unite or divide South Africa? Or is it enough if we all learn to use English very well in addition to our home languages?
  • How does the increased mobility of people in the world and in South Africa change social structures?
  • Should South Africans think differently to make ethical decisions?
  • Does music increase our well-being?

Are you brave enough to think really hard about these complex issues so that you can help to improve peoples’ lives and experiences?  Then the Faculty of Humanities is your home!
