Learning and Teaching
The University has an international reputation for its high-quality and innovative learning and teaching, delivered by staff who are both committed to providing an outstanding student experience and who are at the cutting edge of research in their own disciplines.
The Arts and Humanities encourage us to reflect on what it means to be human, helping us, and our students, to become active citizens in our various communities. We foster openness to enquiry and independence in asking and answering questions to enable all members of our academic community to make a positive impact on our disciplines.
We offer a broad portfolio of programmes at undergraduate and postgraduate level, including many dual degree combinations both within the Faculty and with departments in the Faculty of Social Science.
Postgraduate taught programmes cover both research-preparation MA courses reflecting our research strengths, and also professional qualifications.
