About the College
The ANU College of Arts and Social Sciences (CASS) sets national and international standards in research, education and community engagement across the humanities, creative arts and social sciences.
Our unique location in Canberra creates an enriched teaching and research environment, giving our researchers and students access to the nation’s political, cultural and collecting institutions and government departments.
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.
We encourage our staff to continue to push the boundaries of possibilities in their chosen fields.
