Welcome to the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences
In studying at postgraduate level within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences, you'll better understand how human beings think, act and interact with one another and the world around them. Employers value this knowledge.
Research informs our teaching and helps us make a difference to business, industry and society as a whole. We have a vibrant research culture and our research is noted for its impact.
Our Graduate School is home to over 300 research students from more than 30 countries and we support their development through a tailored training programme.
Our schools offer a great selection of postgraduate level specialisms: education and learning; government and public policy; humanities and culture; justice and the law; life-long learning; psychological sciences and health; and social work and social policy.
We have strong links with governments, global organisations, in both the public and private sector and academic networks. Our graduates are sought-after and intellectually engaged – focused on applying knowledge, they know how the world works, and how to make it a better place.

MSc Political Research
The department's reputation for research preceded it and I'm confident that no other university could offer the combination of expertise, world-class training and constant support that could match that of the Government & Public Policy academics and support staff.
MSc Diplomacy & International Security
The support from the teaching and administrative staff is great. I have never had to chase up anything via e-mail or in-person, and when I have a question or problem it is answered promptly. I feel that we are really valued as students which makes the course all the more pleasant.
LLM International Commercial Law
In terms of the quality of teaching at the university, it really is up there with the best. When speaking to different people along my journey, they always seem to recommend Strathclyde. I also had the opportunity to tailor the course to make it exactly what I wanted it to be, I like that about Strathclyde.
PGDE Secondary Education - English
Coming from the education sector, I found the PGDE programme at Strathclyde offered a fantastic module in educational perspectives and policies (EPP). These not only stimulated my thinking but became the bulwark for understanding the context of education in Scotland.
MSc Clinical Health Psychology
The teaching staff have always been very supportive which is why I would encourage upcoming students to get in touch with the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences if they have any issues or questions at all. Other than that the student union is there for any additional support.
MSc Advanced Residential Childcare
I knew that completing the MSc in Advanced Residential Childcare would qualify me for registration. Also, the qualification had such a good reputation in the residential child care sector because of the curriculum content and the quality of teaching on the programme.
