The School of Arts & Humanities offers degrees in the critical study of all aspects of human culture and history, from ancient languages and history to contemporary film studies. Programmes in the School are designed to encourage students to develop their own intellectual independence. Its teaching staff are world-class academics, contributing to the cutting edge of Humanities research in their disciplines.
The School has pioneered the use of digital techniques in research and the dissemination of knowledge, and has developed distinctive new programmes in interdisciplinary fields such as comparative literature and religion in the contemporary world. Students can take advantage of the School’s connections to universities across the globe, and spend a semester studying abroad at institutions such as the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, Hong Kong University and National University of Singapore.
PROGRAMMES OF STUDY
• Single honours programmes either focus on a single subject area (eg History) or offer an interdisciplinary perspective on a single theme (eg European Studies). Most programmes give students the chance to select a number of modules from outside the main subject.
• Combined programmes: we offer a choice of over 60 combined programmes that are followed by about one-fifth of humanities students. Students can either take equal (or near equal) modules from each subject, or specialise in one subject, whilst extending their knowledge in a second (minor) subject at degree level.
• Digital humanities and modern foreign language options
Training in the digital humanities equips you to reason effectively by applying computing to the most challenging materials our cultures have produced. By focusing on the interaction of computing with the study of cultural artefacts in disciplines throughout the humanities our modules will help you to transform your study with digital tools and resources and provide a set of highly transferable skills that will be of lasting value during your studies and in your future career. The following modules are open to first- and second-year students from any department in the School of Arts & Humanities.
• Introduction to Digital Humanities
• Texts in the Digital Humanities
• Databases in the Digital Humanities
• Digital Research Methods in Theory and Practice
