The academic area for human science embraces three faculties:

The Board of Human Science

The Board of Human Science is a decision-making body responsible for the strategic planning of education and research, the co-ordination of interfaculty education and research, as well as internal and external collaboration. The Board is led by the Deputy Vice Presidents. The Board and the Office of Human Science are also support bodies to the Deputy Vice Presidents concerning strategic issues within education and research.

The Board must be representative and well grounded in the University's activities and organisation. The Board of Human Science consists of the two Deputy Vice Presidents (chairperson and deputy chair person), the faculty managements of the three faculties included, together with three student representatives. The University's three Deputy Vice Presidents should represent their respective academic areas in the University's Senior Management Team. In addition, they should represent and assist the Vice President, both internally and externally, in matters related to the academic area.

The chair of the Board of human science is Astri Muren and deputy chair is Elisabeth Wåghäll Nivre.
