Human science is a way of examining the human experience from a cross-cultural perspective that honors the different ways of knowing and being that different peoples have developed over time. It lets you study the things that matter, in the way you think is most effective.
Human science starts with the understanding that there is no one single privileged position on how people think, act, believe, or feel. There is no one “right answer.” Every aspect of the human experience can be explored in a way that places the human experience first, not second to an academic discipline, perspective, or theory.
