School of Humanities
Humanities disciplines provide the knowledge and skills that the world needs right now and will rely on into the future: analytical and critical thinking, complex problem-solving, creativity, persuasiveness and communication, and continual and meaningful learning.
Students and academics in the Humanities examine and illuminate complex phenomena from diverse perspectives. They make and share discoveries about our history, influence and drive the contemporary cultural and social debates that lead to positive change and have the knowledge and creativity to envision better futures
English at the University of Tasmania brings together literary studies and creative writing. English dreams of a better world through reading, writing and critique. Novels, poems, plays, and screen texts tell us who we are and allow us to imagine what we could be. Discover the many ways to read, write, and imagine, while developing the skills and ideas that will allow you to become the best thinker, writer and critic you can be.
