A degree in Humanities refers to the academic discipline that studies the human condition, using methods that are primarily analytical, critical, or speculative. Humanities are distinguished from the mainly empirical questioning of the natural sciences by the broader, more interpretative approach to a certain subject matter. Humanities focus on understanding the meaning, purpose, and goals of singular historical and social event. The cognitive way of finding ‘truth’, versus the scientific method of uncovering inarguable facts will provide practical societal application for those students of the Humanities degree.

The humanities degree encompasses ancient and modern languages, literature, history, philosophy, religion, and visual and performing arts such as music and theatre. Humanities are also the social sciences that include history, anthropology, communication, cultural studies, law and linguistics. Students working in the humanities fields or studies can be described as ""humanists"" and fulfill the majority of pursued higher education degrees

The societal application of a humanities degree will answer questions that cannot be solved using the scientific method. Issues and concerns arise from a single cultural history that can only be assessed using cognitive and comparative methods of deduction. A humanities degree will provide students with a gainful knowledge and formal education, while exposing the importance of the Classics when approaching modern situations in law, language, literature, art, philosophy and religion.
