Many curious students have been asking if Law, Philosophy and the likes are Art and Humanities subjects? And some of you want to know the list of Art and Humanities subjects for JAMB or WAEC. Well before I go into that, let me show you what Art and Humanities subject is all about.

Art and Humanities is a broad academic discipline that can be studied at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. Most all Polytechnics, colleges and universities have an Art and Humanities department, and these types of degrees are particularly popular amongst students with varied interests as well as among those who have not yet decided upon a specific course of study.

A degree in Art and Humanities gives you a solid foundation for a lot of different careers. Students who study these subjects learn to think critically, express themselves clearly, and analyse new information dynamically. These qualities lead to a high degree of professional flexibility and adaptability.

You’ll also be well-positioned to pursue graduate-level education if you want to since many of the skills learned in Art and Humanities have applications that cross disciplines. For example, if you get a bachelor’s degree in history, you could go on to study law, library science, or education.

You know, most people will have no problem understanding what you’re talking about when you tell them you wish to study Art. They immediately picture you working in a museum or on the stage, and might include painting, sculpture, music, theatre and dance.

But Art and Humanities subjects go deeper like you just read in the first paragraph, and a wide range of very different fields can all be gathered under its canopy. Have you heard of English literature and archaeology? Or comparative religion and theatre art and film studies? These are all examples of fields within the Art and Humanities, but a closer look will that these art and humanities subjects have nothing in common,

According to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the Art and Humanities are “disciplines of memory and imagination, telling us where we have been and helping us envision where we are going.” A simpler way of saying it might be that Art and Humanities are the subjects that deal with what it means to be human and on the uniquely human ways we experience the world.
