The Faculty of Arts at The University of Queensland has a long and rich tradition of scholarship, and is one of Australia's leading faculties for teaching and research in the humanities.
The Faculty of Arts has identified as areas where it has, and wishes to consolidate, internationally competitive research strength:
The Faculty is developing new research strengths in:
- Cultural and Media Studies, including Cultural Theory, Television and Film Studies, and New Media Cultures; and Australian Visual and Print Cultures
- Cultural and Intellectual History, including the History of Religion; the History of Sexuality; the History of Governance, Ideology, and Policy; the History of Political Thought, and Australian and Pacific Cultural History
- Literary Studies, including Australian and Postcolonial Literature and Drama and the study of National Literatures
The Faculty of Arts is central to the University's role of providing a broad, liberal education to the community, an integral element of the role of universities today. The Faculty is committed to excellence in teaching, research, research training and scholarship, service provision and community linkages.
