Our Faculty of Education and Arts comprises the National School of Education and National School of Arts and Humanities. A significant producer of Australia’s new teachers, the Faculty attracts students seeking to tackle complex issues in areas such as global studies, education, youth work, media, communications and design.
Our largest faculty is a top producer of Australia’s nurses, midwives and paramedics. It encompasses three schools – Allied Health; Behavioural and Health Sciences; and Nursing, Midwifery and Paramedicine – and focuses on excellence, innovation and community impact, across all study areas.
By emphasising ethical, social and environmental duties within commercial and legal systems, the Faculty celebrates sustainable success with a human touch. Our Peter Faber Business School and Thomas More Law School deliver courses such as accounting, finance, marketing, human resources and law.
Our Faculty of Theology and Philosophy ranks globally for theology, divinity and religious studies. Students learn to pair new skills with a sense of ethics and a thirst for knowledge and truth. Home to the School of Philosophy and School of Theology, the Faculty also offers professional consulting services to Catholic organisations.
When several departments are overseen by a specialist director, this is known as a directorate. Get a snapshot of our directorates at ACU – from marketing to finance to libraries – and the directors they report into.
As a university focused on excellence, we bring together scholars, students, researchers and professionals to tackle some of society’s biggest issues. See our institutes, academies and centres, and explore their innovative solutions.
