The Faculty of History and Social Sciences (HSS) of the University of the Faroe Islands is located in a building in Jónas Broncksgøta 25, central Torshavn.
HSS offers ten study programmes at bachelor and master levels. It is the centre of research in a wide range of disciplines and areas, most of which is focused on questions related to the Faroese society. Among its full-time research staff, HSS has two full professors and five associate professors. Research activities affiliated to HSS are mainly within these areas: histories of the Faroe Islands, culture(s) of the Faroe Islands, the legal system of the Faroe Islands, the political institutions and system of governance in the Faroe Islands, and the economic and financial processes in the Faroe Islands. The team of researchers at HSS represent a variety of different disciplines: economics, political science, anthropology, sociology, history, theology, law, human ecology, etc.
The researchers at the faculty participate in many international networks and projects, especially in Nordic, Arctic, and island community contexts. Research on sustainable societal development is also a focus area at the faculty. At HSS, researchers are engaged with projects analysing cultural, economic, political, and social transitions in the Faroese society in the 21st century. Many researchers at HSS have close project collaboration with the industry and other private and public agencies. The faculty represents state of the art interdisciplinary scientific projects examining the Faroese society in relation to some of its special characteristics: a coastal, maritime, fishing, small-scale society with a history connecting it to the Nordic countries. The faculty aims to enhance strategic research of the highest international standards for the development of a sustainable society based on local knowledge and resources in a globalising world.
