If you have been away from formal education for a while, ‘Return to Learn’ is the ideal taster course to discover what studying the Humanities is like at University. It provides a stimulating and exciting introduction in a friendly and welcoming environment.    

As humans we are constantly making sense of, and responding to, the world around us: the past that shapes us, the society we live in, and the cultural artefacts and messages we engage with, whether these come via everyday media, through books or artworks, in political speeches, or simply by talking to others. As Humanities students on this Return to Learn course, you will learn how to interpret these sources and messages in more depth, drawing out the meanings and critiquing what you find; in other words, you can gain the skills to ‘talk back’ and enter into conversations with culture.
