About the College
The College of Social Sciences at the University of Glasgow is at the forefront of theoretically-informed and rigorous empirical research and research-informed teaching in all of our Schools.
We build upon the proud tradition of Adam Smith in developing a holistic analysis of society and responding to current and emerging local and global challenges.
Our research makes significant contributions to scholarly debates, to international, national and local policy and practice, and to professional education. Our Adam Smith Research Foundation promotes collaborative research across and beyond the College.
We have an international reputation and make a major contribution to the University of Glasgow as a broad-based, research-intensive university.
We are made up of five Schools, a joint Research Institute and the College Office. The Schools are:
- Business School;
- School of Education;
- School of Interdisciplinary Studies (based at Dumfries campus).
- School of Law;
- School of Social and Political Sciences
- Institute of Health and Wellbeing shared with the College of Medicine, Veterinary and Life Sciences, from August 2011
The College leads the University’s ambitions to expand international recruitment for taught postgraduate programmes. Building successful partnership agreements with overseas partners has continuing momentum.
