Organisation profile

The College of Arts and Law is home to outstanding teachers, researchers and professionals at the University of Birmingham. From the secrets of the Dead Sea Scrolls, through the origins of language,  to regulating AI, our staff produce distinctive and world-leading research that matters.


Through words, music and images, our students engage with the fundamental means of human expression, exploring how people around the world think, write and speak – and share their ideas, beliefs and emotions. In our teaching we discuss challenging and complex issues, such as global challenges in relation to sustainability and climate change, gender issues and international prevention of terrorism and human trafficking. We enhance our students’ experience by offering a wide range of student mobility schemes in 42 countries around the world.
