Message from the Dean

Raoul Mortley, Executive Dean, Faculty of Society & Design

Including the areas of Architecture, Built Environment, Communication, Creative Media, Humanities, and Social Sciences our vision is to deliver students with an innovative, practical and supportive environment in which to study. Our degrees are informed by research, flexible in their structure and practical in their application.

A university is fundamentally about inquiry, and the development of knowledge: knowledge on the part of students, who are being educated, and knowledge on the part of the staff researchers, who are themselves contributing to the development of knowledge in an absolute sense.

We balance this with an attention to the real skills needed in the workplace. We emphasise workplace readiness through hands-on education and we provide a full range of internships, work experience opportunities and clinical placements.

At the same time, we provide a full suite of scholarly and scientific subjects, where development of critical intellectual skills and methods is held to be of the greatest importance.

As well as providing many memorable and fulfilling life and learning experiences, your studies in the Faculty of Society & Design will lay the foundations for your future success in whatever career you choose.
