We're curious about language, histories and global cultures drives our insight and learning and it’s the place to develop your intellectual and practical skills.
Our innovative courses are built on this ethos, adding value to employability, providing an superlative student experience and embracing international opportunities. Fields of study for undergraduates range from classics such as English and linguistics, philosophy, and history to the latest media, communications and journalism degrees - offering the perfect combination of theory and practice. They are academically rigorous and underpinned by the latest research.
Beyond the classroom there’s work experience, external projects, volunteering, field trips, year abroad and international exchange - truly immersive experiences.
We develop postgraduate courses that advance and expand learning. There’s hands-on training in collaboration with industry partners for taught courses and guidance, support and inspiration to develop research. From progressing the study of English, history, philosophy and linguistics, to developing professional skills for careers in journalism, museum and heritage development, creative writing and English Language Teaching – we turn passions into professional success.
Underpinning this is the School’s long and rich history of producing internationally excellent and world-leading research. Our research explores who we are, where we come from and where we want to go, as individuals and as a society. Through inquiry, critical reflection, creative interventions and dialogue, we deepen our understanding of how we inhabit and make sense of the world.
