Five ANU College of Arts and Social Sciences disciplines have been named among the world’s top 10 in the 2019 QS World University Rankings By Subject.

Philosophy (5th in the world) became the highest ranked discipline at ANU. Anthropology (7th in the world), and Politics, Sociology, and Social Policy (10th in the world), also proved strong in their positions.

In total, nine of the College’s disciplines were ranked in the top 25, including History (12th in the world), Development Studies (12th in the world), Linguistics (12th in the world), and Archaeology (17th in the world).

College Dean Professor Rae Frances congratulated staff on their contribution to the College’s latest successes in the world rankings.

“Rankings and ratings fluctuate year to year, but our consistently strong performance across years is evidence of real strength,” Professor Frances said.

“The rankings demonstrate that the Australian National University – and the ANU College of Arts & Social Sciences in particular – is internationally recognised for its strengths in research,” Professor Frances said.

The aggregate categories of Arts and Humanities (16th in in the world), and Social Sciences and Management (23rd in the world) remained the Australian National University’s highest rankings in the 2019 QS World University Rankings.
