Welcome to the Faculty of Humanities

Congratulations on starting your studies towards a degree! We understand that arriving on campus can be a bit confusing and that you feel a bit confused. So, we have created a Humanities Student Guide for you that will provide you with all of the important information and contacts you need as a new student. The book contains the following main chapters:

  • The Faculty, our campus and Humanities Orientation
  • Your academics
  • Constructing your curriculum
  • Looking after yourself

*New students are given a copy of the Humanities Student Guide during Orientation. If you lose your copy, don't panic. Simply click on the 2018 Humanities Student Guide link to download the soft copy version.

This guide is one of a set of Humanities booklets designed to provide you with all the critical information relating to your academic studies and student life on campus. However, should you have any additional queries, please contact or visit the Humanities Undergraduate Office which is located in the Beattie Building (Upper Campus) and/or visit your relevant academic departments.
