Immerse Yourself in a Research-Rich, Culture-Led Community

90% of our English course research outputs are rated as internationally excellent and world-leading (REF 2021).

Northumbria University's Department of Humanities prioritises a strong research ethos, with outstanding successes reflecting our outward-facing work with communities and cultural partners. This is embedded in all our teaching, where research-active academic staff teaching students from day one.

Our programmes are driven by new themes that are vital today: the environment, global connections, the medical humanities, gender and popular culture, activism, conflict and society, heritage, or the great questions posed by modern American culture.

They range in time from the Middle Ages to the twenty-first century and explore global cultures from Africa to Russia as well as delivering new insights into classic themes from English literature from Shakespeare or Austen to new work in writing, music, and cultural studies.
