The University of Southampton


With over 1,500 students, Humanities' undergraduate community brings together seven creative and distinct disciplines.

Many of our academic staff are active researchers. This means that you will be taught by staff who are working at the cutting edge of their discipline and who are eager to share their enthusiasm and ideas with you.

Our friendly, informal atmosphere allows our students to feel free to come and ask for advice and guidance. Throughout your studies, you will remain in close contact with your personal tutor, who can always be turned to for help and advice about academic and non academic matters.

Humanities at Southampton offers a range of innovative flexible learning options, so you can tailor your degree to suit your specific needs and interests.

You can also visit the individual discipline sites to discover more about undergraduate studies: Archaeology, English, Film, History, Modern Languages, Music and Philosophy.

“The staff are extremely approachable, always willing to give up their time and organise extra one-to-one sessions with us if we need help. I think Southampton is unique in terms of student-staff rapport, I have not encountered another university with such a level of friendliness and support.”
