What does it mean to study Arts and Social Sciences? In this unit, we begin with a central claim: that the disciplines that make up Arts and Social Sciences are fundamental to understanding our world and the challenges it faces. Through a set of engaging topics, we ask the foundational questions underpinning our areas of study: what does it mean to be part of a university community? How do we think, read, create, speak, and act, critically? How do we engage in and solve complex, often multifaceted problems, individually and in collaboration with others? How will you build the key communication and interpersonal skills to make a difference in a complex and challenging world?
