Welcome from the Dean
"E ngā mana, e ngā reo, e ngā karangaranga maha, e mihi ana ki a koutou katoa.
Welcome to the Wellington Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences—Te Wāhanga Aronui, home to Victoria University of Wellington’s internationally recognised programmes in the humanities, social sciences, and creative arts.
The subjects we teach have long been considered essential to a well-rounded education. They will challenge you to recognise multiple perspectives, deal with ambiguity, and develop flexibility, creativity, imagination, and critical thinking—all attributes employers tell us they value highly."
Professor Sarah Leggott, Dean of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences
