The School of Humanities prides itself on its world class and research-driven commitment to promoting the critical understanding of culture and society through interdisciplinary linkages across its full range of subjects from Archives, English and History through to Languages and Philosophy.
The School demonstrates such commitment to excellence across its discipline areas in particular via research clusters focused on Comic Studies, Continental Philosophy, Global History and Scottish Culture.
The Arts and Humanities Research Institute provides a focal point for driving such research; located in the School of Humanities, it supports evening lectures and seminars, conferences and visiting fellowships in ways that enable outward facing engagement with general and specialist audiences.
The School attracts over 1,000 students across the range of provision and has a firm focus on promoting interdisciplinary teaching, exemplified in its portfolio of degrees offered in conjunction with other Schools such as Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design.
It is a key consortia member of the AHRC funded Scottish Doctoral Training Partnership and of the SFC funded Scottish Graduate School for the Arts and Humanities.
