It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, where we embrace a wide range of disciplines across the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, including Law and Business Studies.
As a Faculty we have a strong commitment to ensuring an excellent student experience and we place our students at the centre of all we do. This is reflected in our commitment to research informed teaching, small group learning and strong student support and pastoral care. We consistently do well in the National Student Survey (NSS), with academic staff being highly ranked for the quality of their teaching by students. In the 2016 NSS, which placed Liverpool Hope top in the North West for student satisfaction, the Faculty achieved 100% overall satisfaction rates in History, Theology & Religious Studies and Marketing. Courses in the Faculty with 90% and above overall satisfaction rates include Media & Communication, Creative & Performing Arts, Design and Social Work.
The Faculty has a strong research focus with nationally and internationally excellent research, with a large percentage of our academic staff being entered into the UK’s Research Exercise Framework (REF) in 2014. The Faculty was delighted with the REF outcome and the results are recorded on the Faculty REF Success page.
As a Faculty we have strong links with a number of cultural and professional bodies and associations.
Introduction from the Dean, Professor Nicholas Rees
