I have seen good technical professionals fail because of the lack of sensitivity or awareness of local languages, cultures, history, philosophy, or religion.

Why study the humanities?

What special understanding can an education in the humanities provide on global issues? As the purpose and structure of higher education is scrutinized and the budgets for humanities departments are stretched, we are exploring how the humanities contribute to international development, security, prosperity and employability.

We recently launched research into the value that international development organizations place on humanities degrees. This research is part of a broader on-going program to understand the importance of the humanities in today’s global economy.

You'll find an infographic, full report, and quotes from survey participants below which explore the findings in our research.
