Director's Welcome
The aim of the Research Institute for Humanities and Social Sciences (RIHSS) is to effectively contribute to the development of the community in all areas that will make the University of Sharjah a leading research university, particularly in the field of humanities and social sciences.
 
As the university of Sharjah believes in the importance of research in solving many community issues of a social and economic nature; and as research is the best way to disseminate knowledge, UOS, through its 5-year strategic plan (2014-2019), has focused on the need to expand the field of research and provide all possible means helping faculty, researchers and students to disseminate enriched knowledge in their respective field of specialization  .
 
To achieve this, the university has set specific goals and procedures  including re-organizing the current research structure (including centers / units / research groups) and merging them into three institutes for scientific research , such as the Research Institute for Humanities & Social Sciences.
 
Based on the foregoing, I invite my colleagues and our students at undergraduate and graduate levels to take this opportunity to engage and conduct scientific research both at the individual and group levels, and to establish research excellence centers in the areas considered to be most important for the development of the community.

 
Prof. Abdalla F. El-Mneizel
Director of Research Institute of  Humanities & Social Sciences  (RIHSS)
