Welcome to the Faculty of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences

I congratulate you on being offered a place to pursue your passion at The University of Queensland.

And I thank you for choosing to study with our Faculty.

This new beginning is exciting, but for some students it can also be overwhelming, daunting, and maybe even scary. All ambitions are like this, to some degree.

We want you to succeed and we understand that sometimes you’ll need help along the way.

That’s why you’ll find links to all kinds of services and information on this website, and we invite you to attend the relevant Program Advisory Session for your course during Orientation Week. You’ll also have opportunities to speak with a Student Administration Officer about your program.

The Faculty staff and I look forward to meeting you at welcome sessions on each campus, and introducing you to other students. The details are in your Orientation Guide.

The friendly staff in our Faculty Office are also ready to help.

Studying at UQ will be challenging and rewarding – academically and socially. UQ’s humanities and social sciences programs are recognised and valued around the globe, and when you graduate you’ll be joining a network of more than 200,000 UQ alumni worldwide.

Starting today, and on behalf of the Faculty, I wish you the very best for your studies and future career.
