“Macquarie’s global standing and international reputation is a testament to our continuous focus on teaching and research as highlighted by these results. With several Macquarie University subjects ranked in the Top 150 globally, I’m delighted that these three subjects have been recognised as some of the best in the world. The rankings reflect our strengths in research, citations and employer appeal across Linguistics, Philosophy and Ancient History who are all in the Top 50 globally. We continuously build on our strengths so that our national and international standings continue to remain competitive.”
