Histories, Languages and Cultures

School of Histories, Languages and Cultures

The School of Histories, Languages and Cultures explores what is means to live in the world today, investigating the past and examining how we express our current condition. The School of Histories, Languages and Cultures is part of the Faculty of Arts, Cultures and Education.

Bringing together expertise in American Studies, History, Languages and Philosophy, there has never been a more interesting time to join our student and staff body - today’s political and social shifts globally provide fascinating context and subjects for our current and topical programmes.

We aim to develop influential research and deepen understanding of a truly multicultural environment - while being firmly rooted in the City of Hull. With a rich heritage as a major port and a gateway to Europe, Hull is a fascinating cultural, linguistic and historical case study, as well as having a wealth of resources including, the Wilberforce Institute, Maritime Historical Studies Centre, Hull History Centre, the Shoosmith Language Learning Centre and many more.
