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.
