The Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences provides and develops knowledge and expertise through research and teaching in the core social issues of social, economic, political and structural change; human behaviour and human nature; the social and human interface with technological change; human communication; and globilisation.

Research strengths include:

Culture, social structures and intercultural relations; employment and the workplace; international relations and politics; marginalised groups and social response; youth in contemporary society; ageing and retirement; cognitive and applied psychology; social cognition and identity. These and other research strengths are reflected in a range of research centres within the Faculty, and of course the presence of many individual scholars who are world leaders in their fields.

The Faculty's international reputation has been recognised by the awarding to UQ of one of only eight worldwide Rotary Centres for International Studies in Peace and Conflict Resolution.
