Welcome to the School of Humanities and Social Sciences 

On behalf of all your lecturers and teaching staff I would like warmly to welcome you to your new academic home at Roehampton. 

As a humanities and social sciences student you will benefit from the pride and passion we put into your learning experience. We will offer you the opportunity to develop new skills and are committed to ensuring students achieve the very best they can. We do this by offering a range of innovative teaching and learning opportunities that stretch students at every stage of their degree, and by providing all students an academic guidance tutor. 

Your lecturers have cutting-edge ideas and publish world-class research, and these elements will inform your teaching in original and interesting ways. We in the School of Humanities and Social Sciences are passionate about the areas we teach, and whatever your interests and ambitions are, we are here to help you make the best of your studies and give you a rewarding university experience. 

Employers across both the public and private sectors are keen to recruit humanities and social science graduates because they have the analytical and communication skills that benefit society and the economy. There is never a better time to be studying the social sciences, and studying at Roehampton is a great place to begin your journey. 

I hope you make the most of all the opportunities open to you. I also hope that I will see you at the many events, workshops and seminars organised by the School. 

I look forward to seeing you on campus soon. My colleagues and I are ready to help you settle into your first year of studies. 

Best wishes 

Professor Laura Peters 
Dean of School
