These Are The Best Places To Study Arts and Humanities Degrees
It can be difficult to decide where you want to study. And when you do, it’s always good to learn that you’ve made the right decision. If you’re studying arts and humanities – whether you start in 2016 or have just graduated – you can see whether your uni is amongst the best 50 in the world for your discipline.
Times Higher Education evaluated universities across the world on their teaching of history, literature, philosophy, languages and architecture. The results are calculated using the same methodology as their World University Rankings, but they put more weight on teaching and research and less on citations to reflect the priorities of arts and humanities disciplines.
