We have a wide range of expertise in areas such as teaching, counselling, and early years. We also offer a dynamic and inclusive research culture, where students collaborate with our staff and professional partners to investigate the complexities of education and its underpinning values and beliefs.
Research within the School of Psychology is structured around three themes: cognition, perception and attention, and social cognition. Within these themes, specialist groups conduct research funded by research councils, government, charitable groups, and industry.
The School of Social Science is a thriving centre for teaching and research in the fields of Anthropology, Sociology, Politics and International Relations. We are committed to producing research of the highest quality across a range of subjects.
The School is home to a wide range of disciplines, including: english, music, modern languages and cultures, language and linguistics (including communication and TESOL), film and visual culture, Celtic and Anglo-Saxon studies, and translation and interpreting.
Divinity studies theology and religion in its historical and contemporary contexts. History is the study all aspects of human adventure - past and modern. Philosophy covers subjects fundamental to human thought and experience. Art History studies art and architecture from the Middle Ages to today.
Our Interdisciplinary Challenges
For more than 40 years we've combined our academic excellence with industry expertise, to innovate and positively affect the future of global energy.
In a rapidly changing world, we aim to be open to other perspectives and understand how culture and diversity shape human experience.
By making the most of our proximity to nature, our researchers are addressing major environmental challenges both close to home and far afield.
We have carried out research in data science and AI for more than 30 years, discovering new ways to improve health and daily life with this technology.
Engaging with the life sciences industry
We offer many opportunities for industry representatives to work with our academics and their research groups to foster links and establish new partnerships with a view to developing long-term collaborations.
We aim to promote collaboration and engagement between academia and the life sciences industry. There is a wealth of health research and expertise at the University of Aberdeen which represents the link between academics, industrial partners and the business sector.

Life sciences expertise
The Aberdeen Centre for Arthritis and Musculoskeletal Health seeks to understand mechanisms of disease onset and outcome in inflammatory arthritis, osteoarthritis and conditions with chronic pain as a key feature.
The goals of this interdisciplinary Centre are to improve our understanding of bacterial infections, elucidate the role and the importance of bacteria in our health and promote the development of innovative therapies.
Our research is aimed at understanding the roles that stem cells (the cells that can give rise to new joint tissues) and stromal cells (the supporting connective tissue cells) in the joint play in the pathogenesis of arthritis.
Our work is investigating the ways in which normal and abnormal embryonic, foetal and postnatal development impact on development, health and disease.
The Rowett Institute Gut Health theme addresses several challenges that impact on our food system to understand the complex interplay between diet and health.
The Infection and Immunity Programme embraces a range of research topics with emphasis on molecular mechanisms of infection and host defence.
We aim to understand the links between diet and physiology at a mechanistic level and in the context of the social influences driving dietary habits.
Our world-class fundamental, clinical and interdisciplinary research is aimed at elucidating the cellular and molecular mechanisms underpinning life-long human health and disease.
Translational neuroscience uses a diverse range of experimental models and approaches to study neuronal function and malfunction, from single genes and molecules to humans.
