Interdisciplinary Institute for the Humanities

At the Interdisciplinary Institute for the Humanities, we encourage our students to cross boundaries. Great innovation and progress happens when together we learn from other cultures, disciplines and perspectives, and reach beyond our comfort zone.

Our Foundation Year prepares students for the faculty's BA programmes, giving them the opportunity to connect complex ideas and explore their intellectual potential. We help students to think more deeply and critically, be more collaborative, and look at ideas from many angles.

We're home to areas of study that cross disciplinary lines, from the Centre for Japanese Studies, to the Publishing Project, the Media Suite, Digital Humanities and the East Anglian Film Archive. We also offer interdisciplinary postgraduate courses such as  Gender Studies and Interdisciplinary Japanese Studies.
