The Department has an active interdisciplinary research community, particularly with respect to public engagement and practitioner-based initiatives which build on the research interests of our academic staff and over 80 research students.
The Graduate School within the Department fosters intellectual and social interaction between graduates across the disciplines through an established programme of seminars and research training which promote a rich environment for interdisciplinary work, as a well leading discipline-based research.
Many research projects are undertaken in collaboration with others, both at the University and with academics and professionals outwith the University. Research programmes extend across the disciplines and are supported by a departmental research culture that encourages interdisciplinary initiatives.
The Department has a close relationship with Kellogg College; our University Lecturers are all Fellows of the College and many are engaged with one or more of the research centres there, in addition to a range of national and international research partnerships.
