The human story encapsulates the heart of humanities and social science
In the School of Humanities, Languages and Social Science we work together to look at the world and ask new questions and find new answers in our ongoing effort to make ourselves and the communities in which we live more inclusive, just and compassionate. We encourage our community to be critical thinkers, creators, innovators and thought leaders - crucial for navigating the challenges humanity faces.
We are proud to celebrate the incredible ideas of our staff, students and alumni through sharing our events, projects and stories. We will update this page regularly and encourage you to engage with further through our HLSS facebook page.
