Eighteen in the global top thirty

We should all be proud that ANU leads the nation in 10 discipline areas and ranks in the top 30 globally in 18 fields, according to the 2014 QS World University Rankings by Subject.

The University dominates the top rankings for Australia in Arts and Humanities, with Politics and International Relations ranked number seven in the world. The combined impact of our College of Arts and Social Sciences and College of Asia and the Pacific in this discipline is most impressive.

We rank in the top 30 in the world in 18 discipline areas: Accounting and Finance; Agriculture and Forestry; Biological Sciences; Computer Science and Information Systems; Earth and Marine Science; Economics and Econometrics; Engineering – Electrical and Electronic; Environmental Sciences; Geography; History; Law; Linguistics; Mathematics; Modern Languages; Philosophy; Psychology; and Sociology.

ANU increased from nine to 10 subjects ranked top in the country, and has taken first place nationally in Linguistics and Economics & Econometrics.

These results are a great achievement and a testament to the high quality of research and teaching across the University.
