Welcome to the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences

We are an exciting, multi-disciplinary faculty within Newcastle University. The Faculty is made up of nine academic schools, a Combined Honours Centre, Culture Lab and a Language Resource Centre. We also work closely with the INTO Newcastle University Centre.

Our innovative, often multi-disciplinary, research is supported through the activities of our 3 Research Institutes, the Newcastle University Humanities Research Institute (NUHRI), the Newcastle Institute for Creative Arts Practice (NICAP) and the Newcastle Institute for Social Renewal (NISR), a number of research centres and research groups.

The University as a whole is committed to ensuring our research helps address some of the key global issues by focusing on selected societal challenge themes. The Faculty takes the lead in co-ordinating the theme of social renewal.Fine art student
