Faculty of Arts and Humanities

Through the provision of creative learning we build a culture of ingenuity, diversity and distinctiveness, a culture that has far reaching benefits that go beyond the faculty, beyond the University and reach out into the community, industry and economy at large.

The Faculty of Arts and Humanities transcends the provision of degrees and doctorates, lectures and workshops by: 

  • working with schools and colleges to raise aspirations
  • offering space for the development of creative business ideas through the Formation Zone 
  • fostering collaborations both within the University and with external partners through Innovation for the Creative and Cultural Industries (ICCI)
  • bringing a diverse range of cultural events to the people of Plymouth and the South West through Peninsula Arts.
Bringing together a community comprised of the School of Architecture, Design and Environment, the School of Art and Media, the School of Humanities and Performing Arts, and Plymouth Institute of Education, the Faculty of Arts and Humanities works hard for its students be they in the studio, a seminar room, or in co-curricular activities. 

Peninsula Arts, Plymouth's space for arts and culture

Hosting Plymouth’s largest contemporary art gallery, the Jill Craigie Cinema and the brand new performing arts centre The House, we champion new innovations across all art forms.

We're open to everyone, all year round inspiring visitors from across the city, the South West and beyond, to discover and enjoy the arts.
