School of European Culture and Languages


The School of European Culture and Languages (SECL) is one of the largest academic schools at the University of Kent. The School offers an extensive range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in all aspects of European cultural life within our nine departments: Classical & Archaeological Studies, Comparative Literature, English Language & Linguistics, French, German, Hispanic Studies, Italian, Philosophy and Religious Studies. We offer a range of single-honours degrees as well as joint-honours degree programmes combining subject areas within the School, the Faculty of Humanities or other parts of the University.

SECL has long-standing links and exchange agreements with some of Europe’s most prestigious institutions, is the founder of the University of Kent at Paris, runs an MA in Heritage Management in Athens and two new MA programmes in Ancient History and Roman History and Archaeology with terms in Rome.

SECL offers high-quality teaching by staff whose research is internationally recognised. We scored above the national average for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey 2014 and were ranked in the top 10 in the UK for the following subjects: Comparative Literature (1st); Hispanic Studies (1st); Philosophy (4th); Religious Studies (5th); French (8th); English Language & Linguistics (9th); and Archaeology (10th).

In REF2014, our Modern Languages and Linguistics submission was ranked 3rd in the UK, with a grade point average of 3.24 out of 4, and Religious Studies was ranked 7th (with a GPA of 3.11). Classics & Archaeological Studies was ranked 14th for research intensity, and Philosophy was ranked 16th. Our Religious Studies and Classics submissions were also top in their subject areas for the proportion of their public impact work graded as world-leading or internationally excellent.

Head of School: Professor Shane Weller
