The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences is a constituent body of the University of Sydney, Australia.

In 2011 the Faculty had a total student enrolment of 9,159 (18.7% of all students), thus making it the University's largest.[1]


In 2011, the Faculty was renamed from the Faculty of Arts to the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, following the inclusions of the Discipline of Economics (from the Faculty of Economics and Business, which was renamed as the University of Sydney Business School), the Centre for International Security Studies (CISS), and the Graduate School of Government (GSG).[2]


The Faculty is divided into six schools which are collectively home to over 40 departments. The schools are:

  • School of Letters, Art and Media
  • School of Languages and Cultures
  • School of Philosophical and Historical Inquiry
  • School of Social and Political Sciences
  • School of Economics
  • Sydney School of Education and Social Work
