Humanities & Social Sciences

Hone a critical and questioning intellect through the debate, research and study of human history and behaviour. Our expert tutors will guide you through your chosen course.

Theory and practice

You will examine the complex ways in which human beings form relationships, societies and civilisations through your study of geography, sociology, history or the human mind. Theoretical learning will be enriched with practical applications, such as geographical fieldwork and archaeological excavations.


Across the humanities and social sciences department courses, you’ll learn a vast selection of transferable techniques and abilities that will be valuable in Higher Education and employment alike. Critical thinking, analysis, problem solving, observation and interpretation are just some of the talents that you will develop through your studies.

Travel opportunities
