New to Teaching?

As one of the leading arts and humanities faculties in Australia, Macquarie’s Faculty of Arts is home to bold thinkers and passionate scholars who are asking the big questions about the world. United in the spirit of interdisciplinary discovery we explore the human story from its earliest foundations in ancient cultures to its exciting future. Our research is gaining global recognition and with three faculty research centres, two museums, and state-of-the-art media facilities we empower our students and staff to transform themselves and the world around them.
