School of Social and Political Sciences
The School of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Sydney is home to the key social science disciplines, with outstanding staff and students undertaking world-leading teaching and research. In the 2015 Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) report, the social sciences at the University of Sydney was rated as 5/5 - higher than any other university in New South Wales and equal top in Australia with ANU and UQ.
Our 100 staff and 174 postgraduate research students conduct research and teaching across a vast range of topics across politics, government and international relations, peace and conflict studies, sociology and social policy, anthropology, security studies, political economy, and public administration. With a shortly to be completed state of the art social sciences building, world class library holdings and global leaders across key areas of contemporary relevance, the School of Social and Political Sciences is the premier environment for social science research and teaching.
We would like to issue a very warm welcome to Fulbright Anne Wexler Scholar, Sophie Hollingsworth from New York University (NYU) who joins us this year to study our world-leading, Master of Health Security.
