The Arts and Humanities include the disciplines of ancient and modern languages, literature, philosophy, visual and performing arts. These disciplines explore, share, and recreate expressions of the human experience.The arts and humanities explore human experience through creative expression and critical analysis of history, literature, philosophy and religion.

The arts and humanities touch people’s lives at every level. They contribute to our quality of life because, once our basic subsistence needs have been satisfied, they encompass those things that make life worth living. They also contribute to the level of civilization that makes this country such an attractive place in which to live and work. Arts and humanities research underpins our experience when we attend a concert or a theatre, visit an art exhibition, a museum or a heritage site, read a book, or simply wonder what it means to be human. Activities, such as these, it is thought, enrich our understanding of our own lives, fire our imaginations, give us a safe emotional outlet, help us feel we share fascinations with others and belong to a continuum of human activities, all of which make us happy.
Arts and humanities research also allows us to grow our body of knowledge on all aspects of human experience, agency, identity and expression, as constructed through language, literature, artifacts and performance.
