Welcome to the Lincoln School of Humanities
The School of Humanities' friendly and approachable teaching staff have extensive experience of providing full-time and part-time courses. If you choose to study with us, you will be taught by well-qualified and experienced lecturers and professors whose teaching has been given the top rating by external assessors. Teaching and learning methods are up-to-date, emphasising student-centred approaches and independent learning. Coursework assessment is the norm rather than formal examinations, and assessment methods are very varied, including the evaluation of presentations, portfolios and projects in addition to the usual academic essays. You will work individually and in groups within an ethos which emphasises care for the progress of all of our students.
The School has a strong research profile. History achieved an excellent result in the last round of the government’s Research Assessment Exercise; this has funded the establishment of additional capability in medieval history. English has highly research active staff in areas as diverse as Shakespeare and his contemporaries, the Victorian sensation novel, environmental literature, 21st Century fiction, trauma theory, life writing and utopian drama. American Studies staff have followed up successful external funding awards with US archive research visits, and presented conference papers at key national and international events.
