About the faculty

The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at Kingston University comprises a diverse range of disciplines and departments including Law, Economics, Criminology and Sociology, Psychology, History, Politics, English, Creative Writing, Journalism and Publishing, Music, Drama, Dance, Media, and Philosophy.

We are committed to a richly rewarding, practical education for all, with strong support for each student to achieve their educational potential and to explore future career pathways. We want our students to be well trained, job-ready, and capable of making a positive contribution both in the world of work and in the community. We provide personalised support for students throughout their academic study, and offer placement opportunities for most of our students whilst they're studying. We also want all of you to be able to think critically, to weigh evidence, to question, to analyse powerfully, to argue persuasively, and to solve problems in an effective way.

We are committed to the values of diversity, inclusivity and opportunity for all. Our thriving, buzzing campus, within easy reach of central London, is a living example of these ideals and aspirations.

We value expertise.

The Faculty counts among its staff MPs, journalists, Pulitzer Prize finalists, composers, award-winning filmmakers, authors, government and policy advisers, and professional dancers. This rich mixture of staff expertise provides an intellectually exciting environment for our students and encourages diverse research that informs quality teaching.

"The teaching has been fantastic at Kingston. The lecturers encourage you to achieve your potential and because the lecturers believe in the students, the students ultimately produce good results."
