The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences
Welcome from the Executive Dean, David Bruce Allen,
Professor of Strategy and Business Ethics
Welcome to the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences where we are proud to hold leading positions in the UK rankings across our teaching disciplines.
Our faculty brings together scholars and students from across an extraordinary range of academic disciplines in a learning community that is dedicated to the discovery and enrichment of the arts, humanities and social sciences. We are artists, entrepreneurs and scholars working on the pleasures and challenges of our times.
Each year we welcome more than five thousand bright and dedicated students onto our degree programmes. Our students know that strong ideals must be coupled with excellence in practice. In FASS, we emphasise the value of research alongside our conservatoire culture of learning by doing. Our students engage with the theory and history of their discipline while working on real problems and have the opportunity to participate in our renowned professional training year.
Our learning community is global. Our staff is as diverse as our student body. We speak dozens of languages and offer each other learning that comes from our remarkably different backgrounds. Our alumni hold senior positions across the world and we are proud of the contribution they make to society.
Whether you are visiting these pages to find out more about our research, teaching or work with business, industry and government please accept our warmest welcome.
