Dr Francis said: "I am delighted that my former university, which I left in 2001 on becoming MP for Aberavon, has invited me to become Emeritus Professor in the Department of History and Classics.
"I am very impressed with the university's commitment to work with local communities, with schools and with employers, and I hope to assist in developing these links."
Professor John Spurr of the university said: "We are eager to honour Dr Francis's achievements and to develop a closer working relationship with him."
