Human Communication Sciences Society


Join This Group

Do you study human communication? Are you interested in how communication works? THIS is the society for you! The HCS Soc. includes the body of students within the Department of Human Communication Sciences – part of the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health - whatever you're studying everyone is welcome to join.  The Human Communication Society aims to ensure everyone in the department feels understood and involved, and to bring everybody together by organising events and fundraisers throughout the year – fundraisers, socials and volunteering opportunities. Being a member of the HCS Society will give you access to all our events, socials and charity fundraising. We hope to raise awareness of the department and the topic of speech, language and swallowing disorders through our events. In addition, we are sponsored by Revolution Sheffield which gives our members discounts. We are a society run by students from the department of Human Communication Sciences and we want to create socials students can socialise with students from different years and different courses within the department. We hold a wide range of socials over the year – from relaxed get-togethers and foodie evenings, to fancy dress nights out. We organise the annual May Ball, which is an exciting opportunity for everyone to get dressed up, have a fancy meal, get lots of photos and dance! We provide academic and social support for all students in the department, bringing together people from all courses and year groups. We will do our best to help with anything - finding your feet in Sheffield, feeling homesick, using the library, accessing resources and referencing are just a few.  Please do not hesitate to email the society account or a specific member of the committee if you need or want to discuss anything. Joining our society is a great way to feel involved within the university, enhance your CV, have exciting new experiences and meet lots of new, friendly people! We look forward to meeting all of our new (and old!) members in September.  How to contact:  You can get in touch with us via our society email - We also have a facebook, twitter and instagram page.  Any queries, just let us know. Cost:  £5.00. This covers your membership to the society for the entire year, giving you discounts to events and socials we run.  Lots of love, HCS Society Committee :) 



All of our clubs and societies are run by a committee.

A committee is a team of people that lead, organise and publicise a group within your Students' Union.

It can be really rewarding as well as being a great way to gain experience and invaluable skills for your future career.
