Discover Arts and Humanities
Arts and Humanities cover a wide range of inspirational subjects which can help us make sense of our past and shed light on the present and future. Arts and Humanities students investigate different histories, cultures far and near and explore ways of thinking to get a handle on how our world joins up.
All Discover Arts and Humanities students will get a feel for what studying these subjects at university is really like over two years, as well as an insight into career options. You will learn about what university is like from our current undergraduates.
This pathway is for students who meet specific Academic and Widening Participation (WP) criteria from state schools within South Yorkshire and the surrounding region. See 'How to apply' section below for more information.
If you’re a creative thinker and interested in what makes us all tick, then Discover Arts and Humanities is definitely for you!
Students who successfully complete the pathway will be eligible for a conditional adjusted offer for degrees at the University of Sheffield, with the exception of degrees in the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health.
