Researchers: 500 (full time equivalents)
Classical thoroughness combined with problem-oriented interdisciplinary approaches characterise research at Roskilde University. The interdisciplinary approach is underlined by the fact that Roskilde University operates without faculties and that research is organised around six interdisciplinary institutes which altogether account for 40 research groups as well as a large number of research centres.
Roskilde University conducts research within the four main areas: Social Sciences, Humanities, Natural Sciences, and Technical Sciences. In terms of full-time equivalents Social Sciences and Humanities are the largest areas by far.
Roskilde University is divided into six different departments:
Department of Communication, Business and Information Technologies
Department of Culture and Identity
Department of Environmental, Social and Spatial Change
Department of Science, Systems and Models
Department of Psychology and Educational Studies
Department of Society and Globalisation
