Humanities is an umbrella for the study of the meaning of human society, both past and present, at home and internationally.
Our department embraces the study of history and culture from the ancient Greeks to contemporary global issues. Classics, history, philosophy, religious studies and theology all come within the compass of our exciting and relevant programmes. At undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral levels, we offer you rich and vibrant engagements with pressing issues shaping our world. In addition to teaching students, our Humanities staff write the books and articles that you will learn from.
As part of your studies, you will be able to experience work placement, study abroad, and field trips to Rome and Berlin. Our aim is give students life-changing experiences.
