THE HUMANITIES EXPERIENCE

All students who offer a Humanities subject will be immersed in a variety of experiential learning opportunities to help deepen their passion for the Humanities. Be it Art, China Studies in English, Geography or History, students will be engaged in activities that stretch them to appreciate the real-world implications of their Humanities subjects. These activities will develop them to become thought leaders who are ready to shape the way their community thinks about the world around them. These valuable lessons are further augmented through immersive learning journeys, both local and overseas sites, where students are challenged to apply the cognitive and affective skills learnt in the classrooms to the current context of Singapore and the world.

All Humanities subjects develop students critical and creative thinking abilities as students are challenged to analyse and evaluate trends and arguments pertaining to their respective subjects, and invited to imagine how current gaps in knowledge and challenges facing human societies may be overcome.
