Our academic departments manage our various undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, whilst maintaining their own research focus and housing our research centres and institutes. During the summer of 2017 our Pastoral and Social Studies department merged with the Theology department.

Heythrop has one of the largest Philosophy Departments in the UK, which together with the Theology Department, offer a personalised teaching that is a special part of our student experience.  Our departments' research is supported by one of the oldest and most complete library collections of its kind in Great Britain
