Faculty of Humanities


The Oxford dictionary defines culture as “the arts and other manifestations of human intellectual achievement regarded collectively”.  Within Humanities this definition covers all the disciplines incorporated within the Faculty including the arts, English, history, modern languages, classical studies, linguistics, philosophy and religion.

Culture in all its guises is taught and researched across the Faculty’s five Schools and at Kent’s campuses and centres in Canterbury, Medway, Tonbridge, Paris and Athens as well as being integral to our external collaborations across the globe.  From the ancient periods studied within archaeology and classics right up to modern music and art, in Latin and Greek as well as modern foreign languages and through English as well as American and European literature Kent offers a broad perspective.

Interdisciplinary research and teaching across the University includes collaborations with the physical sciences, anthropology, law, politics and international relations, sociology, social policy and religious studies.
