of market research, to ensure that what we offer is attractive to
both potential undergraduates and employers.
Some examples of new programmes in recent years are BA in
War & Security Studies and BA in
Jazz and Popular Music. These complement our already well

The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences is at the heart of the
University of Hull’s research culture. It has been recognised as
internationally excellent in most areas of its research output,
most recently by the Research Assessment Exercise 2008.
Research is carried out both within traditional departmental
structures and, increasingly, in interdisciplinary research centres
and institutes which bring together areas of established and
emerging strength, often in stimulating new configurations.
Our research institutes include the
Wilberforce Institute for the study of Slavery and Emancipation
(WISE) and the Institute for Applied
Both institutes have attracted funding from Research Councils UK
and from a variety of other sources. Colleagues from this faculty
are also involved in a new Centre for
Adaptive Science, in association with other researchers across
the University and more widely with the White Rose group of
universities in Yorkshire.
Our research centres include the Philip Larkin Centre for Poetry
and Creative Writing, which hosts a large number of cultural events
each year on the Hull Campus and in the city. The Andrew Marvell Centre, named after another
famous Hull MP who was also (like Larkin) a major poet, is an
interdisciplinary home for researchers working on the medieval and
early modern periods.
The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences is driven by its
engagement with research. To discover more about our strengths and
opportunities for your research development visit our departmental websites.
We welcome students from overseas for student exchanges, junior
years abroad full-time undergraduate or postgraduate study, and for
specialist English language tuition (in-sessional BRIDGE and
