School of Philosophical and Historical Inquiry
The School of Philosophical and Historical Inquiry (SOPHI), in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, is home to the Departments of Archaeology, Classics and Ancient History, Gender and Cultural Studies, History and Philosophy. Our aim is to be one of the leading centres for teaching and research in the humanities in Australia and the world. Our academic staff include some of the most eminent scholars in our disciplines in the world, along with an exciting array of early and mid career researchers working at the cutting edge of their fields. We believe strongly in the close relationship between excellence in research and high quality teaching. Our undergraduate and postgraduate students are taught by staff who are making major contributions to the field, and our staff benefit enormously from working with the exceptional students we attract to our courses and programs.
If you are thinking of extending your studies or returning to university after some time away, SOPHI offers a wide array of postgraduate coursework programs and units of study, as well as research supervision at MA, MPhil and PhD. Visit the pages on our website and learn more about our highly accomplished researchers and teachers and about the many possibilities for study in the School and the Faculty.
The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at the University of Sydney has partnered with organisations such as Westpac, KPMG, Telstra and Allianz to create paid placement programs for bright and enterprising students. By coupling these placements with professional skills workshops on our campus, the program readies arts students for the workplace and demonstrates to employers the breadth of skills held by our graduates.
