We are a large and diverse school. Our seven departments range in what they study, from the earliest humans to the present, and from Nottingham right across the globe.
 

Humanities: learning, teaching, research

What do our departments have in common? All disciplines offer perspectives on the most significant aspects of human life and culture: birth, love and death, questions of ethics and problems of knowledge and evidence, the relation of our future to our past, and the individual’s place in society and the world. The humanities do not offer certainties or straightforwardly ‘right’ answers: but they do require students to respond to profound and important questions about things that really matter and will never date. It's no surprise then that our graduates are popular with employers: the transferable skills humanities teach are well known and very much in demand.
