Humanities Programme

“The humanities put to the test what it means to be fully human; they teach us, incrementally, endlessly, not what to do but how to be.”
Mark Slouka

The EJC Humanities Programme grooms thought leaders and change makers with a sustained passion for the Humanities. We believe that our students have the propensity to create new knowledge and present new perspectives with a deep, multi-faceted view of the world. Our programme brings together ideas from East and West, immersing students in the enduring school of Western thought and an Asian perspective of the Humanities. The opportunities we offer in the Bicultural Studies Programme and Liberal Arts Programme are intertwined with the Humanities Programme to build cultural intelligence and metacognitive capacity. With that, the Eunoian in the Humanities Programme is able to step confidently into an increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world, thrive in the unfamiliar and embrace the intricacies of the human experience.

The EJC Humanities Programme brings a differentiated learning experience for scholars and selected Humanities students with a shared passion and aptitude for the Humanities. As a Humanities Programme student, you will have the world within reach. On your map are an overseas immersion trip, learning journeys, university-level seminars and a stimulating itinerary of enrichment activities. With unfamiliar lands and uncommon ideas to discover, get ready to travel far and wide.
