The mission of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences is to provide excellence in education to students in pursuit of bachelors, masters and PhD degrees in the fields of social sciences and humanities.

Stepping up to the challenge of the Digital Age that we live in, researchers from traditional humanities disciplines, such as linguistics, literature, cultural studies, history, art, music, and philosophy, and social sciences, have enriched their respective methodologies with tools provided by statistics, Hypertext and Hypermedia, information retrieval, digital mapping, data mining, text mining, data visualisation and digital publishing.
