College of Arts, Humanities and Law at Leicester
The College is home to seven departments:
- Archaeology and Ancient History
- Historical Studies
- History of Art and Film
- Modern Languages
- Museum Studies
As you would expect at the Times Higher Education’s 'University of the Year 2008-09', all of these departments value teaching and research equally and seek to inform their curricula with leading edge research.
In common with some other departments at the University of Leicester, a number in this College also offer degree programmes by Distance Learning.
Housed within or across the seven departments in the College are a number of specialist centres, which offer degree courses and conduct research:
- Centre for American Studies
- Centre for Historical Archaeology
- Centre for English Local History
- Centre for Urban History
- Medieval Research Centre
- Stanley Burton Centre for Holocaust Studies
- Centre for the Study of the Country House
- Centre for European Law and Internationalisation
- Centre for Utility Consumer Law
- Legal Theory Discussion Group
- Research Centre for Museums and Galleries
- Victorian Studies Centre
- Centre for Translation and Interpreting Studies
Leicester and beyond…
The diversity of subjects available, whether as taught degree programmes or as supervised PhD research, and the environment in which you will study ensure that your time at the University of Leicester will be stimulating, educational, rewarding and enjoyable, and will equip you with the skills, knowledge and international outlook that will serve you well in your future lives.
The College works closely with the Careers and Alumni offices within the University to create a bridge with you when you leave Leicester … though, naturally, we hope that you will regularly return to the city and the University.
