College of Arts, Law and Education
It is my pleasure to introduce the College, which was established on 1 July 2017, by aligning the previous Arts, Law and Education faculties as a single entity.
The College brings together teaching and research expertise in creative arts, education, humanities, law, and social sciences to create a multi-disciplinary hothouse for exploring new ideas and knowledge that will help shape the futures of individuals and societies, both locally and internationally.
The College offers a diverse curriculum that encourages students to take a multi-faceted approach to exploring issues and ideas and provides learning experiences, including local placements and international exchanges, that prepare them for exciting and meaningful careers.
The College hosts a number of institutes that reflect its research strengths. The Institute for the Study of Social Change, the Tasmanian Law Reform Institute and the Asia Institute Tasmania challenge current thinking, educate and inform, and contribute to the formation of public policy and the creation of better communities.
I invite you to join our College - as a student, researcher, staff member, supporter – to play your part in creating the future.
