The Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences actively conducts research in a number of interdisciplinary fields. In all cases the Faculty provides a comprehensive research training which underpins the success that Arts postgraduate students experience in building careers in academic, business, professional or government sectors.
Supervision is available in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences to support postgraduate students in areas as diverse as History, Creative Writing, Linguistics or Geographical Information Systems. Many postgraduate students hone their skills in social research, policy analysis, demography, or anthropological or environmental fieldwork. Challenging research is undertaken which extends theoretical and practical knowledge in a range of fields including cultural studies, postcolonial theories, philosophy, and labour relations.
The Faculty consists of four schools (see below). Each school comprises key discipline groups which reflect the research activity of those groups.
