We are a large department of human and physical geographers conducting world-leading research that addresses pressing social and environmental challenges.
Our aim is to be a global node for geographical research - a destination and conduit for outstanding researchers from a wide range of countries and backgrounds.
Our research clusters function as centres of gravity for new ideas, for experimentation, and for maintaining an environment that maximises our collective research strengths. As we move across boundaries and forge new areas of inquiry, we foster a research culture that is open, ambitious, flexible, and adventurous.
The Faculty of Social Sciences and Health has an extensive global collaboration in research and education with partners across the world, promoting Social Science solutions to the world’s greatest challenges.
The stories presented in our International Brochure demonstrate sustained and positive engagement with international partners, particularly around work with social justice in society and the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. Our eight departments have funded research projects on every continent.
