Faculty of Arts and Humanities


0197 Prof Nicholas ReesIt 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, with academic staff being highly ranked for the quality of their teaching by students.

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.  We do, however, also believe that students at Hope should always have the opportunity to study with our outstanding researchers, as all our researchers are also engaged in daily teaching.  

As a Faculty we have strong links with cultural bodies such as the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic OrchestraTate LiverpoolBluecoatNational Museums LiverpoolFilm and Creative Technology (FACT), the Beatles Story, as well as with the Anglican and Metropolitan Cathedrals. The Faculty also has strong links with the Liverpool business community, professional bodies and associations, PSI and other public sector organisations.
