About Us

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.

Our Faculty structure

The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences (HaSS) is a collection of 10 academic Schools, working across a range of disciplines. We also have a collaborative research infrastructure, which includes Institutes, Centres and Groups.

We come together across boundaries to learn more about the world and challenge what we know. We also work closely with the other two Faculties in the University to support education, student experience, and research.

HaSS is home to over 1700 academic, professional, and technical staff. Our colleagues and students have access to an impressive range of on-campus and digital facilities to carry out their work.

Faculty leadership team

The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences’ activity is led by the Faculty leadership team. This team is made up of a Pro-Vice-Chancellor and Deans who lead on strategic areas.

The Leadership team is responsible for establishing, leading on, and managing the strategic direction of the Faculty, across their key areas. They work closely with colleagues within the Faculty Office and within each of the Schools and Institutes.

Our Faculty values and ethos

We value enquiry, exploration, and creativity in our efforts to understand the world and change it for the better. Our work operates against a backdrop of equality, inclusion and sustainability.
