Staff in our School are engaged in research at the highest level, both at the department level (see below - and check our list of current research projects here) and through interdisciplinary work in our research centres:
- Applied Linguistics and Communications: our research focuses on the diverse phenomena of multilingualism, which we believe is the rule rather than the exception in today’s increasingly multicultural world. Find out more about our research.
- History, Classics and Archaeology: this department performed exceptionally well in the 2009 Research Assessment exercise. We are in the top five departments nationally: 90% of the research activities of our staff were deemed to be of international significance. Find out more about our research.
- Geography, Environment and Development Studies: We have a strong research focus that is reflected in the fact that all of our academic staff have been included in RAE submissions. We actively encourage and support collaborative research. Find out more about our research.
- Philosophy: In the most recent Research Assessment Exercise (2008), we retained the high standing attained in previous years: the research work of all of the Faculty's members was assessed, and 100% of it was judged to be of quality that is internationally recognised. Find out more about our research.
- Politics: We are dedicated to producing high-quality research. The 2008 Research Assessment Exercise politics panel confirmed significant evidence of international recognition and international excellence, including world-leading outputs, in the Department's research output.

- Psychosocial Studies: Our staff are highly active in research, particularly in areas of psychosocial theory and qualitative empirical research. At the core of our research is the attempt to theorise and research the constitution of human subjectivity and social life in non-reductive ways that do justice to the complexity of psychic and social processes.
