The Humanities covers an extensive range of subjects, opening up to some of the widest career pathways.

Lawyers, political leaders, journalists, archivists, teachers, social workers, cartographers, and planners; our world is made up of Humanitarians.

The Law and Philosophy, Ethics & Religion department consists of both Law and Philosophy specialists. These subjects enable you to understand differing points of view, enabling you to understand people and form well-balanced arguments. 

Geography, History and Politics explore the complex interactions between the natural world and humans, they allow you to look back at how the world we know has been shaped by its past, as well as the ever-changing political world both in the UK and the US.
