Arts and Humanities

Taking action starts with understanding interaction.

We believe an understanding of language, people and culture is key to effecting world change. That’s what makes Swinburne arts and humanities courses special.

Arts and humanities courses take you on a life-changing journey into human interaction and behaviour. Together, we uncover how today’s technology impacts the way we think, behave and interact. You’ll also learn what drives different people, and the connections between social science and communication.

An arts and humanities course could lead to a career in policy development, community work, international relations, publishing, politics, social change, education and beyond.
