Executive Dean's Welcome

I extend a warm welcome to commencing students of the Faculty of Arts! You are now part of a dynamic faculty community of 150 staff and 3,500 students.

Professor Jennie Shaw

The Faculty of Arts offers a diverse and interesting range of courses from more than 28 disciplines. Our fundamental aim is to help you think, research and communicate more clearly and rigorously than you ever have before. We want you to leave us with the intellectual skills and academic abilities to not only find a stimulating and rewarding career, but also succeed in every area of your life.

The Faculty has a wide range of exchange agreements with overseas institutions, which allow you to study overseas toward your degree whilst enrolled here at the University of Adelaide. For high achieving students, there is also an opportunity to do an internship in a workplace to count toward your final year of study.

To assist with your transition to the Faculty and university life, we have compiled some useful links. If you need any assistance, please contact the Faculty office.

I wish you every success in your studies.

Professor Jennie Shaw
Executive Dean, Faculty of Arts
