UCL Faculty of Arts & Humanities


Ahead of the Curve – Welcome to UCL Arts & Humanities

Welcome to the UCL Faculty of Arts & Humanities. You’ve joined a vibrant community of scholars, teachers and students who are passionate about the arts and humanities and their role in making sense of our world – and who are committed to sharing that passion with others.

I'm just ahead of the curve. – taken from The Dark Knight, written and directed by UCL English alumnus, Christopher Nolan (English 1993)
