INSIGHTS INTO EVERYTHING
Through exploration of the humanities we learn how to think creatively and critically, to reason, and to ask questions. Because these skills allow us to gain new insights into everything from poetry and paintings to business models and politics, humanistic subjects have been at the heart of a liberal arts education since the ancient Greeks first used them to educate their citizens.
UNDERSTANDING OUR WORLD
Research into the human experience adds to our knowledge about our world. Through the work of humanities scholars, we learn about the values of different cultures, about what goes into making a work of art, about how history is made. Their efforts preserve the great accomplishments of the past, help us understand the world we live in, and give us tools to imagine the future.
BRINGING CLARITY TO OUR FUTURE
Today, humanistic knowledge continues to provide the ideal foundation for exploring and understanding the human experience. Investigating a branch of philosophy might get you thinking about ethical questions. Learning another language might help you gain an appreciation for the similarities in different cultures. Contemplating a sculpture might make you think about how an artist's life affected her creative decisions. Reading a book from another region of the world, might help you think about the meaning of democracy. Listening to a history course might help you better understand the past, while at the same time offer you a clearer picture of the future.
PROBLEMS FACED BY THE STREAM.
- looked down by the society just because they feel Humanities as a stream is chose by failures while there are toppers in science and maths in their secondary school who prefers Humanities as a stream.
- When science stream is said to give high level prestiged occupations such as Doctors and engineers, the truth is that nowadays these same occupations are not able to provide enough jobs to all those degree holder.
- Arts degree is said to be useless but people should know we cant just live with doctors, engineers, chartered accountants in our society, but we also need lawyers, civil servants and officers,linguists, Fbi agents, journalists, foreign correspondents, human resource specialists, artists, pyschologists, politicians, nutritionists, sociologists, teachers, businessmen, entrepreneurs, marketers, flim makers, designers, media and communications, home makers, philanthrophist, philosophers, writers, counsellors, event organisers, geneologists, and what not.
- Humanities by providing these many life chances is equal and holds the same position just as any other stream or discipline does but it fails to reach the minds and hearts of the society we now live in.
