We're a multidisciplinary School offering teaching and research in the following areas:

We have a clear commitment to developing excellence across our undergraduate and postgraduate curricula. Our students are taught by internationally renowned researchers and have access to excellent facilities.

All of our students benefit from our superb research culture. Our activities provide a bridge between academic research and teaching and the wider world of culture, heritage and the arts. 

The University is consistently ranked highly in league tables. Newcastle was ranked as the seventh best university in the world - and first in the UK's elite Russell Group - in a survey of international student satisfaction. The School of Arts and Cultures contributes strongly to these high rankings.

Most of all, we commit to preparing our students for the world of work. Many of our graduates secure the best employment opportunities in their fields regionally, nationally and internationally.
