University of Brighton Art

University of Brighton Art, It is the arts and humanities that give us our cultural wealth, and those who study them learn to look at things differently. At the University of Brighton’s College of Arts and Humanities we strive to look beyond what a human being is, to what a human being has the potential to be.

Brighton is inherently a city for the arts. In the nineteenth century, Henry Cole said the city’s ‘industries’ were ‘health, recreation, education and pleasure’, and since then it has inspired the likes of Graham Greene (Brighton Rock, 1938), Franc Roddam (Quadrophenia, 1979), Fat Boy Slim and Nick Cave.

Our college is a platform for education, research and community engagement that extends into and beyond the city, developing opportunities with and for the highest levels of practice. Read more about our ethos and objectives as scholarly practitioners in the arts and humanities.

The College of Arts and Humanities is one of three colleges at the University of Brighton.

It comprises four schools and a single Centre for Research and Development (CRD).

Led by the Dean, the College of Arts and Humanities sets the strategic vision for all arts and humanities activity from the university and is the key interface with the outside world. Its role is to set and raise the bar on academic quality and culture for teaching, research and collaboration, with a responsibility for leading excellence, enhancement and innovation across its schools.

The academic schools are responsible for the delivery of college and university objectives and for the management of all academic staff and their teaching. The schools are

School of Architecture and Design | School of Art | School of Humanities | School of Media

These schools work closely together to create an integrated student experience and a stimulating and challenging community within which to learn and research. Managed within the College structure are archives and collections and the university gallery and theatre as well as a number of teams dedicated to provision to the college while liaising with central university operations.
