Humanities and Social Science strategy
Our Humanities and Social Science (HASS) strategy builds on our research excellence to combine six interdisciplinary themes that are academic challenging and innovative. They are all priority research areas where Exeter can demonstrate world-leading excellence. The themes also address major global challenges and map well into the priorities of major UK and international funding bodies.
In 2008 17 of our departments were ranked in the top 15 by volume of world-leading activity. English is the highest ranked in the sector for world-leading research, with Archaeology second and Classics and Ancient History third.
