Our Research

The breadth of our expertise in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences creates exciting opportunities for genuinely original, innovative research that brings together diverse disciplines to make a positive impact on the world.

Our Schools and Departments provide a focus for world leading subject specialism, while the University's institutes, research centres and groups catalyse cross-cutting research.

Many of our Departments ranked highly against other UK institutions in REF 2014, particularly Archaeology, Architecture and English which ranked within the top 10.

We also share our knowledge and resources with a wide range of partners. This spirit of cooperation, our ambitious development plans and the research facilities we have make us an excellent place to pursue research.
