The Department of Humanities & Law brings together disciplines from across the Faculty of Media & Communication.

Using traditional and progressive approaches to studying, experts from each of the areas bring a 21st-century focus to illuminate and offer students the chance to study these well-established disciplines through a modern, contemporary lens.

You will be taught by academics who are constantly updating their knowledge through research projects of global impact.
