HaSS is a new and dynamic faculty, which already enjoys an excellent reputation across the spectrum of humanities and social sciences.
Through our core activities of research, knowledge exchange and education, we aspire to generate new ideas, knowledge and skills to increase our understanding of the world, and strive to make a significant contribution to the economy, society and culture of Scotland and beyond. As one of Scotland's top law schools, and Scotland’s largest provider of teacher education, we also have significant expertise in developing the professional practice needed to equip modern societies at local, national and global levels.
As a student in HaSS, you will benefit from innovative courses designed to encourage student and staff interaction and collaboration across different subjects. We aim to produce graduates with a better understanding of the challenges facing the world today, ensuring that they are capable of succeeding in an increasingly complex technological age, and doing so with a social conscience. Our professionally accredited degrees incorporate the required elements to enable students to become qualified teachers, lawyers, psychologists, counsellors, community educators, Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and speech and language therapists, and our social workers programmes ensure professionals stay up to date and able to adapt to changes in their field. The Faculty has thriving research and teaching programmes in the area of History, Politics, Physical Activity For Health, and English.
From 2012, we will be located in a new HaSS Quarter in the centre of Glasgow a few minutes from the railway stations and main shopping areas. A central courtyard will provide a social hub and access to student services such as the library, café, meeting areas and exhibition spaces.
