Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences
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, scholars and practitioners working on the pleasures and challenges of our times.
We actively encourage you to constantly explore and consider the real world applications of the subject you are studying. We give you unique access to opportunities to become articulate, critical thinkers who are adaptive and flexible for the ever-changing professional landscape.
Our cutting-edge research investigates ideas and practices relating to all aspects of human life and experiences. Our staff work with external organisations, from the Government to international businesses, ensuring that our research has a real-world impact.
Join our new AI Institute
The newly-formed pan-University AI Institute at the University of Surrey offers a unique environment to help shape the future of AI as part of a community of co-creators, and as part of that we are building a unique team with 12 new academic appointments at lecturer, senior lecturer or reader level.
We firmly believe that excellence in research and teaching in the twenty-first century can only be achieved with an international dimension.
We maintain a highly dynamic network of partnerships with internationally-renowned institutes.
