UNSW Arts & Social Sciences has a vibrant and diverse cross-section of academics, researchers, and students who come together to exchange knowledge and develop new ideas. Our academics are internationally recognised and leaders in their fields, creating new knowledge and new forms of understanding. We combine proven research and education approaches with progressive new ways of thinking to tackle pressing issues, inform social change, and enrich public debate.
We're one of the largest and most socially engaged faculties of our kind in the Southern Hemisphere, and a national leader in the humanities, social sciences, education and creative and performing arts. Our research and education deepen our understanding of the diversity of human experience and challenges traditional ways of thinking about the world. By applying this new knowledge to some of the most urgent challenges of our time, our research makes a significant contribution to public debate and the formation of effective policy.
We're home to some of Australia’s leading centres of teaching and research excellence and we have an impressive cohort of honours and postgraduate research students. We'll challenge you to think critically, to communicate with creativity and influence and then to translate your knowledge and skills into exciting and impactful careers.
