Congratulations to our newest graduates who are celebrating their graduation!

ANU was founded to foster world-class research and talent, to address and understand major issues Australia and the world faces. And for 75 years, our scholars in the humanities, arts and social sciences (HASS) have made a vital contribution to understanding, to creativity, and to shaping the future. HASS helps to bring people together, helps humanise and improve design and technology, and helps us understand how we make decisions, from the everyday like what we buy, to the far-reaching decisions of policy makers.

Our graduates in the humanities, arts and social sciences have become voices for a better society and practitioners in diverse fields from development and science to culture and justice. They are artists and designers, historians and philosophers. They have become leaders in business, politics, education and much more.

We celebrate our graduates, and the dedication and endeavour each has made to complete a qualification from Australia’s national university.
