Research in Social Sciences

Social Science at UWE Bristol is home to the world-renowned Centre for Appearance Research (CAR). CAR conducts research that focuses on appearance concerns – both their root causes and consequences.

The findings of research carried out by CAR and other research centres based at UWE Bristol, including the Centre for Health and Clinical Research, feed directly back into the curriculum and what you will learn. Our research also has impact in the real world, and you can read more about our study on tackling negative body image.
