Our mission as a Faculty of Social Sciences is to make a difference, through:
- High quality learning and teaching, and postgraduate training, that develops critical reasoning skills and employability
- Generating research and scholarship that helps develop disciplines themselves, and also produces socially useful new knowledge
- Putting enterprise and engagement, locally and globally, at the heart of our mission.
Our faculty is home to seven schools of study, all at the forefront of teaching and research in a range of social science and professional subjects.
Our faculty is made up of many branches of knowledge. We provide a vibrant and stimulating environment for social sciences research for both academic colleagues and postgraduate research students.
Our internationally important research involves the study of society and the manner in which people behave and impact on the world around us.
Our ambition is to develop our environment where we proactively seek opportunities for our research to make a real difference to individuals, communities, policy makers and companies, both in the UK and internationally.
