Macquarie University in top 100 in arts and humanities: Times Higher Education rankings

5 October 2016

Macquarie University has ranked in the top 100 worldwide in arts and humanities, according to the 2016/17 UK Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings by subject, released recently.

Macquarie performed particularly well across the subject groupings of languages, literature and linguistics; and, history and philosophy. Executive Dean of the Faculty of Arts, Professor Martina Möllering, said it was pleasing to see Macquarie’s performance in these disciplines highlighted internationally.

“I am proud that our strengths across arts and humanities have been recognised in this way, alongside other leading universities in Australia and overseas. Our faculty offers a diverse research focus and inter-disciplinary approach through which we empower our students and staff to transform themselves and the world around them,” said Professor Möllering.

It was also recently announced that Macquarie moved into the 251-300 band in the overall 2016/17 THE World University Rankings.

The THE rankings are assessed from five Pillars, each of which represents a key area of higher education excellence: teaching, industry income, research, citations and international outlook, with more than 900 institutions are assessed worldwide.

Macquarie moved up in four out of the five Pillars – teaching, industry income, research and citations – demonstrating steady progress in performance on the world stage.

The Times Higher Education World University Rankings, established in 2004, are published annually and provide a list of the world’s best universities, assessed over different categories across University core areas.
