Our faculty consistently ranks in the top 20 Arts and Social Sciences faculties in the world. By collaborating with us, you'll have access to leading humanities research as well as some of the brightest students in the country.
We are proud of our network of project partners and always welcome new opportunities to work with business, industry, arts, educational, government and non-profit organisations.
Our collaborations lead to genuinely reciprocal outcomes, providing openings for sharing knowledge and resources as well as innovative research developments that create cultural, economic and social benefits for the wider community.
Here are some of the ways we can work together.
Draw on the multidisciplinary power of humanities research and collaborate with us on local or global projects. Some of our current initiatives include:
We’re actively researching the factors influencing adoptions in Australia to bring about a positive change in the culture, policy, and practice of permanency planning in NSW.
A greater appreciation and understanding of Australian research will result from our media residency program, supporting academics with a flair for communicating their vital work.
Responding to the global demand for language skills, we're designing programs to support 54 languages and offering advanced professional learning courses for volunteer community language teachers.
We’re integrating archaeology, museology, and cultural landscape research to look at histories of Australian South Sea Islanders’ lives and communities.
Together we can create transformative education programs that tackle real-world challenges. Some of our current learning opportunities include:
Students from a variety of disciplines combine and respond to the challenges of the Westmead Precinct, including improving the accessibility of dental services and enhancing the hospital experience for children and their families.
Students work together to present briefs to state leaders, offering recommendations on the use of drones by law enforcement; the relationship of social media and youth mental health; and whether existing laws adequately cover abuse in domestic violence contexts.
The first of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere, our new Master of Education (Taronga Conservation Education) degree forms a gateway to the zoo campus, providing students with authentic learning environments and the skills to secure a healthy future for wildlife and people.
We offer internship opportunities that unleash the creative and intellectual potential of arts and social sciences students. Our students enhance your day‑to‑day operations and gain valuable exposure to industry processes and networks. In turn, you can tap into a pool of talented future employees.
