Just as astronauts think differently when they break free from Earth’s surface, so we invite you to break free from everything you’ve learned in the past. When you come to the Humanities department, you have the opportunity to think differently.
We will explore the meaning and significance of humankind’s expansion into space in a supportive and creative environment past, present and future.
In the Humanities department, we ask what factors motivated people to go to space, what we brought with us from Earth to space, and how space has influenced culture and society back on the ground.
These investigations will bring us to many meeting points with the other departments, as participants have the chance to approach technical subjects with a new perspective.
During the departmental activities, participants will have the opportunity to learn and practice skills from humanities subjects such as history, archaeology, art, design, philosophy, drama, and the social sciences. The activities range from guidance on communications and outreach to broader skills for creative thinking and problem solving, and will be practical as well as enjoyable.
