Humanities and creative arts facilities

The Institute and its courses draw on the full range of facilities available within the University, with humanities and social sciences courses taught in modern rooms, digitally and otherwise fully equipped to meet the range of learning and teaching approaches that we deploy.

Creative arts and journalism courses make use of extensive specialist facilities: on the St Johnís campus, there is a well-equipped studio theatre and a Digital Arts Centre with adjacent, additional networked Mac studios and digital editing suites. The Garage, a newly opened suite of high-spec studios and associated workshop space, offers impressive facilities for fine art and other studio based art and design teaching. We also call on a range of spaces and environments off-campus in response to the needs of site-based work and projects.

Students currently make use of open-access spaces across the University available for self-directed study outside formal teaching sessions. The Hive, Worcesterís stunning new library and history centre built between the Universityís St Johnís and City Centre campuses†houses extensive arts, humanities and social sciences book, journal and DVD collections that are continuously being added to and updated. Here, the book stock on display†has radically increased and extensive new facilities for self-directed study†are on offer. History students benefit, especially, from the facilities and activity of the history centre, with which the History staff team has strong links.
