University of Pretoria - Faculty of Humanities

You can choose to enrol for a professional degree in any of a variety of fields, such as psychology, social work, communication and audiology—our Department of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology is equipped with Africa’s only Specialist Neuro-Otologic Test Centre. These programmes will train you in skills that are scarce and essential, especially now.

Another option is to study music, drama or visual arts at our School of the Arts, which offers Africa’s only arts therapy programme. The JavettUP Arts Centre is keen to expose new creative talent to internationally renowned artists and scholars.

If you wish to become multilingual—another key skill—there are a range of language courses to choose from, and our programmes in the social and applied social sciences will introduce you to the complexities of a broader world. We are proud to say that several of our UP-trained social scientists are internationally recognised and celebrated with appointments to UN and other key international bodies.
