College of Arts Research Centres

Research is central to the College’s mission. The establishment of sound infrastructures that both sustain individual excellence and promote a vigorous research culture is an integral aspect of the College’s overarching research strategy.

Of primary concern is active professional practice and engaged research within the context of relevant local, national and international partnerships.
