There are two important reasons why the ANU is the best choice for studying sociology in Australia: the first is the ANU's own considerable resources and facilities, the second is the fact that the University is located in the centre of Australia's capital city, Canberra.
Situated on the edge of Canberra's commercial centre, ANU is one of Australia's most prestigious universities with a considerable international reputation.
Teaching staff in the School of Sociology offer and contribute to a wide range of courses in anthropology, development studies, languages and applied linguistics, contemporary history, international relations and political sciences, social research and research methods.
As a medium sized university with about 10 000 students, ANU also offers much greater scope for contact between staff and students and a more intimate atmosphere on the campus than some larger Australian universities. The University is well provided for in terms of all other facilities including accommodation, student services and student support.
