Collaborate | Humanities

Working in the Humanities means exploring human relationships and uncovering the meanings behind particular texts and stories. It is therefore natural that our research teams combine academic excellence with a commitment to public engagement.

The Department of Humanities works in partnership with a broad range of stakeholders to support and grow the economic, social, cultural and intellectual capital of the region and beyond. The department covers a wide range of disciplines through research and engages with business in several different ways dependent on the requirements of our partners. Areas include, research, consultancy, workforce development and Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP).

Our disciplines can help your organisation to solve problems and develop the potential of your business, no matter what area you are in (corporate, cultural, education, third sector etc.)
