Studying for a humanities degree is a luxurious opportunity to indulge in complete immersion in the subject you love, acquiring the essential skills of research, analysis, argument, reasoning, and drinking tea almost imperceptibly.
An arts or social science degree never goes out of fashion. While some are more specific or entail applied study, the humanities programmes enable you to explore a subject in depth for its own sake, without a specific end in mind.
The faculty of humanities encompasses all those enduringly popular studies which might lead anywhere and everywhere. You will study with passionate subject experts in smaller class sizes than at many universities and a more than usually supportive environment.
Each course offers a stimulating mix of experiences, developing you intellectually speaking – your capacity for analysis, problem solving, open-mindedness, critical thinking and judgement.
Similarly, you will develop transferable skills in including high-order skills in oral and written communication and in gathering, interpreting and presenting complex information.
The programme prepares you for further in depth study at masters or PhD level, or for employment in practically any field you choose.
