The Department strives to provide a stimulating research environment committed to the development of high quality projects and publication at international level. There are internal and external seminar series, graduate lectures and reading groups, all making for a research environment in which staff and students can fulfil their potential.

Our research profile can be characterised by five broad themes. These are not administrative units: they reflect collective expertise in a number of domains in which the department is recognised to be active.

Staff and students are usually involved in a number of research grants including projects with other universities and companies as well as other collaborations at national and international level. These contribute to one or more of the themes. Funded research positions are often made available for working in specific projects.

The Department is also a member of the University's Institute of Finance and participates in the Digital Humanities group.
