Why study with us?


A Strathclyder for me is someone who doesn't just have knowledge, but who has a commitment to using that knowledge for the betterment of the people around them.

Exploring how humanity thinks, acts, creates and interacts

The Department of Humanities is a community of researchers, teachers, students, and support staff working on some of the most important and engaging topics in historical and contemporary culture.
