“The imagination is an innate gift, but it needs refinement and cultivation; this is what the humanities provide.”
Education is a pretty broad concept which surpasses the four walls of the classroom. The core aim of education is to foster all round development of a child. Children are raw and they still have to understand their strength and the hidden talents in tem. But to give them the right opportunities and platform to find their inherent talents is what matters the most. RIS provides the platform for the students which give them the opportunity to develop particular skills and exhibit their non-academic abilities.
- A humanistic education helps students to understand, appreciate, and produce art, music, theatre, and literature. Humanities disciplines focus on understanding beauty and the good, and give students the opportunity to practice making good and beautiful things themselves.
- The humanities matter because they enable children to: consider questions about the meaning and purpose of their lives. Explore their own identities, values and beliefs and concepts such as time, space and faith. Develop skills and habits associated with critical and creative thinking.
- The humanities set into motion ways for students to consider our world, learn empathy for others, and process ideas.
- Creativity, originality, and differences are encouraged.
- Without the humanities our world and schools would be bland and lack innovators that can and will change the world.
- The humanities help us understand others through their languages, histories and cultures.
- Humanities expand our understanding of different human cultures and enable us to understand ways in which they’re similar and ways in which they differ, in the present and historically, delivering a broader perspective on the world in which we live.
- Humanities majors develop important skills, often called “soft skills,” which include persuasive written and oral communication, creative problem-solving, teamwork, decision-making, self-management, and critical analysis.
