Why Humanities & Social Sciences
The aim of the studies of humanities and social sciences is to impart, to the youth and each individual, knowledge of the social, political, economic, literary and artistic build of the world they have been living in.
Talking about both the disciplines separately, social sciences aim to connect different individuals in a way that they understand each other’s situation so as to live and prosper together with harmony and happiness, which is especially important in today’s world where globalisation and increasing communications are reducing boundaries such that practically everybody is staying together in one big world and that any misunderstanding can lead to havoc and loss of peace.
Humanities, on the other hands, aims to connect an individual to his/her self through art and, in turn, provide the world an artist who provides a relief from the troubles and tensions of life and helps in gaining peace and internal harmony. Needless to say that such artistic individuals have not only had the most colourful of lives, but have almost always been handsomely rewarded for their work.
