Humanities study the meaning of life, what it means to be human, the stories we tell ourselves, the beliefs we hold, the histories of societies, and the future we imagine. Our School of Humanities is divided into three subject areas; English and Creative Writing, History and Classics, and Religion, Theology, Culture and Philosophy.
Humanities at Roehampton offers both breadth and depth; our world leading research informs our teaching from ancient Greece and Rome to contemporary issues in Hinduism and Buddhism, from Shakespeare to Animals and Environment, from innovative writing to Love, Sex, Death and God, from Magic and Politics to Woman and Islam.
We cultivate a supportive environment that empowers students for success within and beyond the University of Roehampton. We’re home to internationally renowned academics and writers, including Dame Jacqueline Wilson, Professor David Harsent, Professor Suzannah Lipscomb, Professor Tina Beattie and Professor Fiona Sampson. As part of your studies, you will be able to experience work placement, study abroad, and field trips to Rome, Berlin and Paris. Our aim is give students life-changing experiences.
