These reports highlight the wide-ranging economic, social and cultural impacts of the humanities, arts and social sciences in Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand.

The humanities, arts and social sciences deliver direct economic benefit to the Australian and New Zealand economies and bring with them huge social benefits. Graduates of arts degrees also go into a long list of exciting and diverse careers, all of which have an important role to play in a healthy, happy, and well-informed democracy.

We’ve gathered data from a wide range of sources, including Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching surveys, industry reports, graduate testimonials and national arts participation surveys.

The reports are accompanied by two fact sheets which summarise the key findings from each report. These resources will help you dispel common myths about the humanities, arts and social sciences and can be shared with students and parents at orientation and open days.
