Humanities were a group of academic disciplines related to Human culture.

In 2366, when told by Guinan that he could learn a lot from Data, a powerless Q retorted, " Sure, the robot who teaches the course in humanities." Later, he referred to the android as his "professor of the humanities" when expressing his desire to thank him. (TNG: "Deja Q")

Fields typically included in the humanities include Anthropology, archaeology, history, linguistics, literature, philosophy, theology, and more.
