About the Faculty

The strength of our academic expertise combined with the breadth of disciplines we cover afford a wealth of opportunities to our students and researchers. This means that the Faculty is able to make a real impact on the world and bring benefits in cultural, economic and societal terms.

We have one of the broadest portfolios in the arts and humanities, as well as the creative arts and technologies, among the Russell Group of research-intensive universities. The Faculty plays a key role in the development of cross-institutional degrees, and our students benefit from being taught by expert tutors from an exceptionally broad range of areas – whose cutting-edge research informs what and how our students learn.
