The Humanities empower one to navigate the world we live in. Through an education in the Humanities, students learn to reason about being human and to ask questions about our world. They also learn to deal critically, logically and creatively with subjective, complex and often imperfect information.  

At Northland Secondary School, the Humanities Department offers a range of subjects to develop our students into inquisitive and thinking Humanities learners. These include Social Studies, Geography, History and Elements of Business Skills (EBS). Starting from 2019, we will be offering Retail Operations to our Upper Secondary Normal (Technical) students in place of Elements of Business Skills (EBS), to better prepare them for progression to a course of study in the Institute of Technical Education.
