Study and Research

Reflecting the breadth and diversity of scholarship in the College, Hughes Hall has formed a number of subject groupings which serve as intellectual and scholarly hubs for the College’s senior and student membership. While rooted in the traditional subject areas of the wider University, each group runs a programme of interdisciplinary events and projects enhancing the College’s broader intellectual culture, supporting the academic development of the student body, and bringing together the student and senior membership. The pages in this section provide a guide to the main subject areas and the activities they support: Law, Biomedicine, Business and Economics, Education, Physical and Mathematical Sciences, or HASS (Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences).

In addition to the everyday research and study of students and the senior membership, the College hosts a number of Bridge Centres, presently including the Centre for Climate Change Engagement, Oracy Cambridge, and Cambridge Digital Innovation that function as focus points for the wider development and application of a number of special research activities and projects.

The College has also evolved a mission to support and nurture academic domains
