Queen’s University Belfast
The Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences

A Community of Scholars
We are a busy, multidisciplinary community of learners, dedicated to using the wide range of subjects on the arts and humanities to make a difference in lives locally, nationally and internationally.

We are home to some 7600 students and 700 academic and support staff who work in five Schools – Arts, English and Languages, History, Anthropology, Philosophy and Politics, Law, Management and Social Sciences, Education and Social Work – and a Global Research Institute, the Senator George J. Mitchell Institute for Global Peace, Security and Justice.

World Class Facilities
Our work takes place in an attractive

  • School of Law – a state of the art new building with innovative teaching spaces including an interactive Moot Court and a One-Button Studio for students to hone advocacy and presentation skills.
  • Bloomberg Trading Room - students have access to the Bloomberg professional service, and to Oxyor, a trading simulation, which puts them in a dealing room hot seat.
