Welcome to Research in the Faculty of Arts
Excellence in research is an integral part of the mission of the Faculty of Arts. Research is conducted in the Faculty's three schools and specialist centres, and is recognised both nationally and internationally for its contribution to understanding our culture and communities.
Academics in the Faculty of Arts seek to continually enhance their reputation for research quality, producing high impact publications, gaining a range of competitive research grants and awards, working with government and industry, and supervising an increasing number of Higher Degree Research (HDR) students. The Faculty is committed to improving its research training, quality of outputs, and support services.
There are many opportunities for staff to develop their research capabilities, and our goal is to see that both academic staff and research students reach their potential as competent, productive and quality researchers. Working together, our aim is to enhance the research profile of the Faculty of Arts, generating research outputs that have local, national, and international benefits and significance.
The Faculty of Arts welcomes your suggestions regarding your research needs and opportunities. Should you require advice on publications and grants, or simply want to canvass ideas, please contact the Associate Dean, Research Hamish.MaxwellStewart@utas.edu.au
