The School of The Arts is a vibrant hub for learning, teaching, research and the creation of artistic outputs - with an exciting range of performance and production opportunities for students, staff and high-profile visiting artists. In a truly collaborative environment, our students learn with and from those who influence their fields of study and research, as well as continuing to perform and practise their craft on a global stage.

A jewel in the crown of the School is the multi-million pound development, Middleton Hall - a world-class arts venue incorporating a 400-seat concert hall, industry standard recording and rehearsal spaces, and much more.

School of Criminology, Sociology and Policing

Hull pioneered the study of criminology over 30 years ago. Since then, we’ve built a powerful reputation that has allowed us to develop strong links with local, regional and national criminal justice agencies.

Sociology and social sciences at Hull means examining the forces and events that are shaping the world around us. What are the causes and consequences of Brexit, for example, or the increase in terrorism attacks? Our programmes are genuinely global and contemporary in scope.
