School of Humanities and Social Inquiry

In the School of Humanities and Social Inquiry (HSI), our students engage with cutting-edge ideas, new ways of thinking and global perspectives. We train students to think historically, philosophically and politically about the world, societies and cultures.

Nothing is ever just black and white, and our academics will equip you with the critical, analytical and interpretation skills necessary to question existing beliefs, social systems and institutions, and make a real impact on the world around you as leaders of tomorrow.

I started a program called the Language Exchange and we have people from all across the world who come along, enjoy a coffee and practice speaking different languages with each other. It's really rewarding knowing that I've created this community here at UOW. Christopher KhatoukiBachelor of International Studies (Honours)
