Our goal is to make Macquarie University one of the leading research universities in Australia, and the world. Having recently earned a rating of 5 QS Stars, including the highest rating for employability, Macquarie is definitively a world-class university – for students and staff. We’re investing heavily in new buildings, courses and staff as well as collaborating with businesses here and around the world such as Cochlear, Intel and CSIRO.
One of the most talked-about aspects of Macquarie is the expansive, park-like campus surrounding us. With our new high-tech library, private teaching hospital, gym and pools, childcare facilities and our own railway station, Macquarie is also a great campus to have as your workplace.
The Faculty of Arts is distinguished by students and staff who work together within and across disciplinary boundaries to ask questions about socially complex problems, identify paths of research, analyse and communicate ideas in creative formats and reflect on the skills and knowledge they will need to understand the world, past and present.
