Faculty of Arts and Humanities

Welcome to the Faculty of Arts and Humanities. We are proud of our internationally recognised research excellence, our dynamic research culture and the stimulating and imaginative learning experiences we make possible for our students. We are fortunate to have a wonderful shared resource in the Humanities Research Centre housed in the award-winning Berrick Saul Building, and we value both the quest for excellence and our collegiate life in all we do.

In the last Research Excellence Framework, four out of eight of our departments were placed in the top five in the UK in their respective disciplines. In the 2023 Times Higher World University rankings, the Faculty was placed top 50 in the world. We hope you enjoy exploring our excellent individual departments and centres.

Professor Duncan Petrie, Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities
