Giving to the Humanities

Oxford is the world’s leading university for Humanities teaching and research. From languages and literature to history, philosophy, religion and the arts – Oxford is at the forefront of critical engagement with the historic and contemporary concerns of humankind.

Oxford Humanities students benefit from our faculties of world-leading experts. They have access to unique resources, among them the treasures of the Bodleian Library and the Ashmolean Museum. The huge range of subjects within the Humanities gives students the knowledge to excel in leading professional and academic roles beyond university.

Philanthropic support is at the heart of sustaining the Humanities at Oxford. The generosity of our donors allows us to continue offering unique resources, facilities and scholarships to attract the brightest and best academics and scholars from across the globe.
