Learn to do something you love.
Our school is for both thinkers and doers.
We celebrate students and staff with a true passion for the Arts and Humanities.
Through inspired teaching and intellectual debate, plus day to day interaction with award-winning authors and playwrights, a rolling programme of media industry professionals, published lecturers and world-renowned researchers, we will nurture your passion by developing your creative and critical thinking.
Then we will open your mind to the wide range of opportunities to pursue a career you love, be it anything from writing and teaching, through journalism and copywriting, business and marketing, to research and publishing.
Where? Leeds is the Northern heart of culture and the arts. Your campus sits in the very centre of the city, surrounded by over 18 museums, 10 art galleries, 17 theatres, 4 film production companies and 3 recording studios (plus the odd bar, restaurant and club!). We work directly with Leeds museums and galleries and many regional events, including the Ilkley Literature Festival and the Leeds West Indian Carnival.
What? Our courses cover English, Creative Writing, Media and History. All are informed by our internationally recognised research, giving you outstanding access to learn from, and discuss with, leaders in their field.
How? Our research and teaching explore a diversity of topics, from South Africa under Apartheid to the cultural impact of the LGBTQ community and from on-line racism in football to 21st century genres. We're also very hands-on: from regular conferences, seminars and events organised by our Centre for Culture and the Arts, to collaborations with institutes and cultural organisations.
