The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences is consistently ranked one of the world's most outstanding academies for research in the humanities and social sciences.
Our research extends across a diverse range of disciplines throughout our six schools. Embracing traditional, emerging and cross-disciplinary subjects, we are driven by the pursuit of new knowledge that benefits Australia and the wider world.
In 2019 we launched FutureFix, our six future-facing research themes in the social sciences. From senior professors to early-career researchers to students, we are collaborating with industry and community groups to help design solutions to issues of global importance.
Our major research initiatives include the Sydney Social Sciences Advanced Research Centre (SSSHARC), which emphasises innovative approaches to turning great ideas into landmark outcomes for both theory and practice. We are also home to some 40 other specialist research centres, institutes and groups.
We partner with industry, community and government to address the intellectual and practical challenges the world faces today, and we always welcome new collaborations.
