Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences

Information for Students

Student studyWe refresh our undergraduate portfolio each year, on the basis 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, BA New Media and Political Communication and BA in Jazz and Popular Music. These complement our already well established programmes, some of which involve work placements which are seen as valuable by both students and prospective employers.

Please visit individual department websites to see what full details on what courses are available.

Part-time

All of our courses are available in part-time mode and we run various programmes exclusively in part-time mode, e.g. Social Sciences and History. The Part-time provision office also has courses available

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 Ethics.

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 pre-sessional Summer Study).

For more details of support as an overseas student, you should see the websites of the Language Institute or the International Office. Alternatively, please contact Dr Richard Burchill (r.m.burchill@hull.ac.uk), Faculty Director of International Partnerships.
