Welcome to the Faculty of Arts, Humanities, Education and Social Sciences. Welcome to the next generation of artists, storytellers, policy-shapers and change makers. We're here to question the answers, rebuild the broken and rethink the wisdom. Because we won't solve problems by doing things the way they've always been done. It's future's turn.
