Humanities offers courses in Media, Communications, Built Environment, Art and Design, Education, Languages and Social Sciences to name but a few.
Its courses are applied, creative and relevant to contemporary society and many are geared for direct entry to the workforce backed by professional accreditation. Some of these programs are also taught in Asia; in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong and Sri Lanka where Curtin enjoys an enviable reputation being one of Australia's largest international universities.
These relationships, along with others in Europe and America, provide Humanities students with opportunities to study abroad whilst enrolled at Curtin and through contact with international students at Curtin, our students gain familiarity with different cultures and build contacts in a global workplace.
Research in Humanities is innovative, applied, creative and relevant and is frequently conducted in partnership with government and industry. Curtin Sustainable Tourism Centre has achieved acclaim for its work at Ningaloo in Western Australia's North West and with small business enterprises throughout the State. Other research groups specialise in community development in Asia and the Pacific, creative technologies and Australian Culture providing elegant solutions to complex problems and a deeper understanding of Australian Culture and the cultures of surrounding regions. Above all, Humanities researchers enjoy a reputation for achieving results, a reputation envied by other Western Australian Universities.
