The humanities is a broad subject that includes many branches of human creation. These creations all come together to make up our culture. Everything that is not part of our natural world was constructed by humans and contributes to culture. This includes everything from our clothing, furniture, and homes to the music we listen to and the episodes and films we watch. Even our laws and our religious beliefs are part of the humanities!
