The research in the Faculty of Arts covers the following fields: Archaeology, Cultural Studies, History, International Relations, Journalism, Language and Literary Studies, and Linguistics.
Research takes place in the three faculty research institutes. The institutes are engaged in different fields of research and develop their own research programme every five years. Each is headed by a director. The Faculty also has many research and competence centres and participates in various research schools at a national level.
- Centre for Language and Cognition Groningen (CLCG) for research in the field of linguistics
- Groningen Research Institute for the Study of Culture (ICOG) for research in history, art history, literature, and the intellectual, political, literary and artistic culture
- Institute of Archaeology (GIA) for research in the field of archaeology
The research institutes of the Faculty of Arts participate in local and national research schools. The national research schools handle part of the training provided to PhD students and also maintain their own research programme. Each research school has a Director and a Scientific Advisory Board and is governed by one the participating faculties, which functions as secretary (penvoerder). The national research schools, united in the Council of Dutch Research Schools in the Humanities ( LOGOS ), have been acknowledged by the Council of Deans in Arts and Humanities (Disciplineoverleg Letteren en Geesteswetenschappen, DLG). The quality of the educational programme and the research performed is assessed during the governing institution’s research evaluation.
