About us

We take great pride in our student community and are committed to ensuring that all our students enjoy a rewarding learning experience.

Our teaching is informed by the most recent academic research and is recognised as world-leading.

Offering a wide range of degree programmes in the social sciences, our school houses academic expertise within seven disciplines:

Taking an interdisciplinary approach to teaching means that these disciplines often cross over, creating a rich and broad learning experience.

We’re also proud to offer opportunities for students to study part of their undergraduate courses through Welsh language teaching.

Our graduates leave us highly employable, fuelled by our offer of extending studies to four years. Students can choose to spend an additional year on professional placement or studying abroad. These real-world opportunities are underpinned by our research-led teaching.

We're recognised as one of the best research centres in the UK, with teaching staff directly impacting government policy and practice.
