A personal touch
Small class sizes and engaging and industry leading teaching staff who know your name make studying humanities and social sciences at ACU a high-quality experience. Our staff are widely published researchers and practitioners in their chosen field and are recognised for their teaching excellence as well as their commitment to creating a supportive, personalised learning environment.
Our Arts Advantage Program will give you the tools to confidently step into the job market. You can also volunteer at a non-profit organisation to build on-the-job skills, or be a part of the Big Idea – a social enterprise competition designed to provide innovative ideas to help homeless, marginalised and disadvantaged Australians.
Work hard in your first year and you may be invited to join the National School of Arts’ Scholars Program. The students invited into this annual program have the opportunity to work with the school’s top research staff and to devise and complete an individual research project with a mentor.
See the world
Our humanities and social sciences students go on amazing adventures. This could include semester exchanges or completing an intensive overseas unit where you will tour literary and theatrical landmarks in New York or follow 600-year-old flood markers around Rome. You can also study a Core Curriculum unit at our Rome Campus or in Beijing, Leeds, Paris or New York.Study overseas
