We offer innovative cultural journeys that will help you view the world in a whole new way, giving you exceptional opportunities to learn and develop. Alongside the traditional subjects such as English Literature, English Language and Linguistics, Politics and International Relations, History and Philosophy, the Department of Humanities offers applied courses including Mass Communications, Journalism, Media and Creative Writing.

With a wide variety of modules to choose from in a range of subjects, you’ll be able to shape your degree around your personal interests and ambitions. Many offer opportunities to study abroad, immersing you in another culture.

The overwhelming support I got from my lecturers was amazing. Whenever I had interests that lay beyond the topics covered, they always gave me the freedom to explore those subjects and weave them into my coursework. This individuality has really helped me find out what I want to do in life.
