Take a closer look at the teaching and research taking place across our faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences
In the faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, our four departments deliver courses and conduct research in a wide variety of humanities and social sciences subjects. We're home to more than 200 staff and 6,000 students from the UK, EU, and overseas.
Our research explores themes across a host of subjects within the faculty, which informs the teaching and supervision of our students. We also support academic staff to develop partnerships and consultancy activities with public and private enterprise.
We engage with the world beyond our University, ensuring that our students are fully prepared for the careers they wish to pursue. We opened the Placement and Internship Centre in 2013, and most of our courses offer placement years.
Our teaching is supported by the latest technology, with learning resources created in partnership between academics and experienced online course developers.
The Faculty is located in four different buildings around the compact city centre campus: Park Building, 水闸, 圣乔治大厦和瑞维林大厦.
