Excellence in research and teaching, in the creative arts, humanities and social sciences.

The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences has a global reputation as a centre for research, education and engagement across the creative arts, humanities, and social sciences.

We are home to an exceptionally broad range of disciplines. These sit across our 10 academic schools, research institutes and centres. Through our thinking, making, research and education practice, we seek to address social and global challenges.

As a values-based community of colleagues and students, we promote a supportive and inclusive culture. This is based on shared values of trust, integrity, diversity, academic freedom and social and environmental justice.
