Introducing the School of the Arts

The hub of creative thinking at the University of Liverpool

The School of the Arts is one of four Schools in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. The School is home to five academic departments:

ArchitectureCommunication & MediaEnglishMusicPhilosophy.

As members of the School these five centres of research and teaching have a vibrant community in which to pursue the remarkable things that happen when people from different fields trade ideas.

The historic 19-23 Abercromby Square sits at the centre of School life, providing recently refurbished conference spaces, library facilities and seminar rooms that every member of the School can call their own. The School’s more than 2000 undergraduate and postgraduate students, drawn from over 50 countries, benefit from the University’s international links, and its campuses in Liverpool and Suzhou, China.

You can study many Arts subjects with us, singly or combined at undergraduate and postgraduate level (taught and research). All offer rigorous academic training, combined with strong practical involvement in the events and projects we run with leading Arts organisations.

We engage fully with Liverpool's rich arts, culture and heritage scene, with many of the key players such as the TateLiverpool Philharmonic and National Museums Liverpool collaborating with us on teaching and research. 

We hold a range of excellent events to address research and teaching outputs, areas of interest, careers advice and much more besides. Through our events we reach out to students, alumni of the five departments, staff, employers and members of the general public, making the School the hub of cultural life at the University. Please do keep an eye on our calendar and do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or suggestions.

Through our activities we aim to support our goal of inspiring, supporting and developing people who can think for themselves, imagine the future and shape the world.
