Through training courses provided by these partnerships, you will gain knowledge and skills to undertake high-quality social science research.

Our research staff work in a diverse range of fields from sociocultural, historical and political studies, to film and literature, linguistics and sociolinguistics. The School has strong links with interdisciplinary research centres and groups, including: Centre for Caribbean and Latin American Studies; Centre for Research in Linguistics and Language Sciences; Research Centre in Film and Digital Media; Gender Research Group; Medieval and Early Modern Studies; Postcolonial Research Group.

As a student in the School of Modern Languages, you will benefit from the Humanities and Social Sciences (HASS) Faculty research training programme. You will choose these research modules in consultation with your supervisors.
