Dean's welcome

Professor Paul PickeringI am pleased to welcome you to the website of the ANU College of Arts and Social Sciences. On this website you will find information about our degree programs, news and events, our staff and their research interests.

We are a community of scholars committed to generating ideas, challenging stereotypes and accepted wisdom, pushing the boundaries of intellectual thought and producing new empirical findings that inform policy and practice debates across the country. Our college is distinctive for its multidisciplinary research and teaching culture, along with a vibrant program of conferences, exhibitions and seminars throughout the year.

Our social scientists, humanities scholars and creative artists are regarded as being amongst the best in the world. We are committed to excellence in research-led teaching and supervision, ensuring that you are exposed to the latest debates and knowledge in the discipline.  Our class sizes are smaller than in other leading Australian universities and we guarantee to provide accommodation on campus for all first year students.  For graduate students we provide a high level of infrastructure support including financial support for fieldwork, conference travel and access to an office.

ANU is a wonderful university located in the nation’s capital. The people, the students, and the physical amenities provide for a research and teaching intensive university that is unique in Australia. Come and find out for yourself.

Professor Paul Pickering
