We are known for our distinctive strength and range of disciplines, the development of professional practice, and the societal impact of our activities.
The University's decision to merge the former faculties of Education and Law, Arts & Social Sciences and create a new, unified faculty was driven by the desire to maximise the potential for research collaboration and staff and student interaction across the humanities and social sciences fields.
The new Faculty is therefore structured somewhat differently from a traditional university faculty - there are no departments, instead activities are managed strategically and integrated across the entire Faculty, allowing us to be more responsive to student needs and market opportunities, and share good practice across the Faculty.
The Faculty is led by the Dean, Professor Tony McGrew, and the Faculty Management Team. Administrative and secretarial staff are organised into central support teams (Faculty Office, Planning & Resources, Academic Quality, Research & KE, Graduate School, IT Services) and course support teams, and academic staff are organised into six schools.
