ABOUT IE SCHOOL OF HUMANITIES

Taking humanity forward – and negotiating the complexities of emerging technology and the challenges it poses – requires innovative excellence in the long-standing disciplines that are a reflection of our humanity and differentiate us from the machines we develop. The humanities are more relevant than ever, and they will play a critical role in how we forge society in the future.

At IE School of Humanities, we complement the ever-relevant humanities disciplines with bold, forward-thinking, and new global perspectives, embracing the digital world as both a source of new challenges to humanity and a valuable tool for addressing them. We provide enduring, contemporary education to produce leaders not just fit for humanity’s future, but ready to shape it.
