Our subjects

The school is made up of nineteen different subject areas covering a diverse range of Arts and Languages disciplines. Our work embraces the material, visual, linguistic, textual, social and performative dimensions of human society ranging from pre-historic times, through the classical and medieval periods, to the present day. For students, we offer the advantages of belonging to a specific subject area combined with the extensive choice and variety of being within a large and multi-disciplinary school.
