Divisions of the University of Oxford

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The various academic faculties, departments, and institutes of the University of Oxford are organised into four divisions, each with its own Head and elected board. They are the Humanities Division; the Social Sciences Division; the Mathematical, Physical and Life Sciences Division; and the Medical Sciences Division.[1]

The Humanities Division has received considerable praise for its work at the forefront of digitising the Humanities.[2] The Humanities Division has been physically expanding into the new Radcliffe Observatory Quarter in Oxford.[3]

The current Head of the Humanities Division is Professor Karen O'Brien. Professor Sally Shuttleworth was Head from 2006 to 2011, Professor Shearer West served as Head between August 2011 and 2015,[4] and Chris Wickham until 2018.[5]

The Division contains the following faculties and departments:[6]

Medicine has been taught at the University of Oxford since the 13th century.[7][8] In 1770, John Radcliffe, an Oxford-educated physician founded the Radcliffe Infirmary.[7] The current Head of the Division is Gavin Screaton, the current Divisional Registrar & Chief Operating Officer is Chris Price. Professor Alastair Buchan was head from 2007-2017[9]

The Social Sciences Division represents the largest grouping of social sciences of any university in the United Kingdom.[17][18] As a major provider of social science research, it is accredited by the Economic and Social Research Council as a Doctoral Training Centre of excellence in research training.[19][20] From 2018 the division's head is Professor Sarah Whatmore.[21] From 2008 to 2017 the head was Professor Roger Goodman.
