College of Humanities and Social Sciences is one of the six colleges in Hamad Bin Khalifa
University (HBKU). As part of an innovative research-driven university, CHSS aims at
researching and disseminating knowledge related to the forefront issues in humanities and
social sciences. Our values are excellence, diversity, society orientation, collaboration,
innovation, and integrity. Also, our overarching theme is social justice that we attempt to
integrate into our research activities. As a result, we aim to address social justice and
achieve core values through interdisciplinary research.
The four research clusters and their related research themes aim to organize research in the
CHSS. Each research cluster can help the faculty and students to position themselves as
researchers in the CHSS. Through these research clusters and research themes, the faculty and
students get the chance to address relevant issues and produce new knowledge. The clusters are
designed to be interdisciplinary and address a wide range of topics in humanities and social
sciences. There is the hope that these research clusters create research spaces for
cross-department and cross-college research collaborations.
