Our Alumni

A lively academic community

Humanities' range of flexible undergraduate degree courses appeals to students with a wide range of interests. One third of our Humanities students study one of our fifty combined honours courses as these prove to be an exciting alternative to simply studying one subject at university. We also encourage you to spend time at one of our partner universities as part of our study abroad scheme. This multitude of opportunities will allow you to develop yourself and your thinking in ways that will benefit you for the rest of your life, whatever career you chose.

Outstanding facilities

Our undergraduates have access to the very latest study resources including the largest university library in the South of England. We boast an extensive range of unique facilities including a purpose-built £3m Archaeology building, valuable historical archives and a strong collaborative relationship with Chawton House Library (former residence of Jane Austen). On campus we host  internationally acclaimed arts venues such as Turner Sims Concert Hall and John Hansard Gallery
