Humanities; is a non-degree awarding department in Faculty of Creative Multimedia (FCM). It serves to support all departments with conceptual understanding about media and related issues. Subjects offered include Media Appreciation, Creative Studies, Media Aesthetic, Media & Culture, and Media Anthropology. All subjects are core and are spread over the FCM curriculum. At the heart of the Creative Multimedia Humanities are the thinking and the dimension of creativity.

Aware of the importance and the crucial aspect of it, these principle elements are expected to be nurtured in students. We believe they contribute to personal fulfillment and professional development. All of these principle elements are skewered together through creative and inventive activities that enable students to apply their knowledge, skills and attitude in a realistic context of creative multimedia. Personalized learning and flexible content too has been built into Creative Multimedia Humanities’ modules to make this idiom possible.
