What will I learn?

Our Humanities degree draws on philosophy, politics, history and literature to investigate the major challenges of life in the contemporary world, considering what it means to be a human in the twenty-first century.You will be based in the city centre and will benefit from small group teaching and interdisciplinary study. The course team includes experts in all the major humanities subjects and you will join a critical environment with frequent guest lecturers – academics, politicians and writers – from around the world.Your lecturers encourage you to adopt a critical attitude to yourself, to the world you live in and to the received opinions which so many take for granted.Everything you learn on the degree comes together in your final project, where, supported by an academic tutor, you will learn how to complete independent and original research on a topic of your choice.The knowledge and skills you build throughout the course prepares you for a range of careers, such as in the public sector or teaching, and forms a solid foundation for future study.
