Abstract

This paper deliberates upon the rise-fall-and-again-rise of the study of Humanities in higher education across the world. All the societies and civilizations in the course of history have proven that our societies shift the focus and philosophies of the education system. When we take a swift consideration for the words like Innovation and Technological Development, we have seen some rapid changes in the global education economy. The overwhelming emphasis on STEM disciplines had pushed the Humanities and Human Sciences into the margin or even completely out of the picture from the university classrooms. But in the last 10 years, the world has been going through a transition. The impact of Humanities in the lives of the young generation today has opened up many areas to study Humanities and also new areas are being explored currently. The attempt to find a one-size-fits-all solution for education today has revived studies Humanities in the campuses. This is the period of Humanities 2.0.
