The Research Centre for Social Sciences works to promote social science research at York. It fosters interdisciplinary research collaborations, provides training and skills development for our community of researchers, and promotes knowledge exchange and impact with our regional, national and international partners outside the academy.

This flagship Centre, hosted in a dedicated building opened in April 2013, provides research facilities for social science researchers at doctoral level and above. The building provides workspace for doctoral and postdoctoral researchers, as well as visiting scholars and research groups. The Centre hosts a wide range of collaborative, training and engagement activities.

You can find out more about the Social Sciences community at York and our activities on this site. The Director, Professor Matthew Festenstein, welcomes questions about the Centre and suggestions for research and engagement activities.
