The University of Humanistic Studies is devoted to high-quality scientific research and education on the basis of its humanist inspiration, and thereby contributes to a humane and sustainable society in which all people can lead a meaningful life. Since its establishment in 1989, the university has been active in carrying out academic research relating to social, ethical, and worldview-related issues. It also supports the practical application of the knowledge acquired as a result of this research, and educates creative and critical professionals who actively participate in social debates.
