What we do

The Institute for Social Science was created to support social science research activity across the three Newcastle University faculties.

Our key aim is to raise the profile of social sciences. Along with humanities and the arts, social science is essential in tackling major societal challenges.

The Institute works by:

  • supporting, developing and funding projects and initiatives
  • hosting events
  • creating spaces for critical thinking, discussion and debate

We support work that is cross disciplinary, that questions ideas, that engages with societal challenges and proposes new ways of collaborating.
