The Humanities

The Humanities Department at Cathedral College Wangaratta covers a vital, active, socially and environmentally aware group of subjects that aim to help students understand the world in which we live, because it is concerned with people in different time and in different places. 

We expect students to investigate, to analyse, to question, to observe and to participate in fieldwork that helps develop perspective and important insights into how people engage with their social and physical environments.

In English, classic and modern texts challenge our students at every Year Level and analysis of these encourages our students to develop an awareness of their place in the world and an understanding of other people’s values and beliefs.
