Research in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences

We aim to provide relevant knowledge about the human experience. Our research is designed to be globally influential, providing societies and communities with an understanding of phenomena that are significant for them. Our research covers topics from major global phenomena to issues affecting people’s everyday lives.

Our faculty is unique in Finland, combining research traditions from the social sciences and humanities. Through our use of multidisciplinary strategies, we aim to gain a diverse understanding of phenomena while realising their historical development.
