Faculty of Humanities, University of Southampton

Southampton, England, United Kingdom
Research and education of the highest quality define Humanities at the University of Southampton. We are passionate about investigating what makes us human, from language and music, to philosophical debate and history and culture in all its forms.



Our world–class academic staff provide our undergraduates and postgraduates with the highest level of tuition and support, their expertise always based directly on their personal research.

As well as working within their own fields, our academics work together across the disciplines to further knowledge. This means thought-provoking subjects such as slavery can be examined from several perspectives to give students a comprehensive picture of the complex issues.

Our exciting range of taught degrees will give you in-depth knowledge and a firm foundation of transferable skills.


Our innovative research centres bring together researchers to focus on broad topics such as the 18th century and Medieval and Renaissance worlds. We also host the unique Parkes Institute for Jewish/non-Jewish Relations and the Parkes Library, one of the largest collections of Jewish archives in Europe.

Our cutting-edge research informs our teaching, which is regularly recognised as second-to-none in the annual National Student Survey. Throughout Humanities, our academic members of staff are friendly and approachable; always willing to help and support their students to succeed.
