ANU College of Arts and Social Sciences

The ANU College of Arts and Social Sciences is the largest single College at ANU.

We set national and international standards in research, education and community engagement across the humanities, creative arts and social sciences.

Our researchers shape debates and public policy through consultations, media outreach and through the research they produce. Our disciplines rank highly against other universities globally, and most achieve rankings of above or well above world standard in the Excellence in Research Australia rankings by the Australian Research Council.

Our staff consistently push the boundaries of possibilities in their chosen fields.
