The University of Wolverhampton

Welcome to the School of Humanities

We live in a world that has been shaped by big ideas – cultural, philosophical and religious. At each stage, these ideas have been the site for challenge, contest and debate and continue to be so.

About us

‌We make the most of our ideal location in the heart of Wolverhampton. Our honorary graduates include local literary figures such as Ben Zephaniah and Meera Syal. The literature and dialect of the Black Country is studied in English, Creative and Professional Writing and English Language and Linguistics. In Religious Studies, local field visits enable students to get first-hand knowledge of a faith community. Read the School of Humanities brochure.
