On 10th May, staff and students in three departments of Humanities and Social Sciences (HaSS) were informed by email that their departments were being proposed for closure. The decision follows a review carried out this year, following on from discussions last year around the merger of the old faculties of Law, Arts and Social Sciences, and Education. 

SOS - Save Our Subjects!


Over the next month there will be a period of consultation and it is absolutely vital that staff and students from across the university – regardless of what you study or teach – unite to defend the value of education, recognise the excellent teaching provision within each department. Time and time again we have had management pick out (and on) those subjects who don’t conform to a narrow ideology of what education should look like. 


Each of the departments earmarked for closure all have an excellent track record in terms of student satisfaction, top quality teaching staff, and contribute greatly to the academic standards of our university. Moreover, students have been informed at a time when they’re sitting exams – exams in subjects deemed unimportant it would seem by the university. 

Over the next month we’ll be working hard to put the case for each of the departments to the university – but we need your help. Make sure you get involved with the campaign and come together to Save our Subjects. 

The slash and burn goes on…what’s next?
