The ANU College of Arts & Social Sciences (CASS) was established by the ANU Council in January 2006.
CASS is one of seven colleges at The Australian National University. CASS undertakes research and provides education in the broad disciplines of the creative arts, humanities and the social sciences.
The College is comprised of two principal academic units – the Research School of Social Sciences and the Research School of Humanities & the Arts - that cover the main disciplines to deliver leading research and education programs.
The principal academic units of the Research Schools are:
While subordinate to the College Executive, the College is also governed by a College Education Committee and a College Research Committee consisting of the members of the College Executive Committee, and representatives of the schools/centres within the College, as well as student representatives.
As part of its ongoing program of quality assurance in Education, and in order to set future directions in both Education and Research, the College of Arts and Social Sciences is conducting a series of reviews of academic programs and Schools within the College.
Reviews of Schools also consider internal organisation, governance, resources, staffing, staff development, linkages with other areas of the University and outreach to the broader community.
