Dates of existence

1970 - 2006


The Canberra University College (CUC) amalgamated with the Australian National University in 1960. In 1961 the former CUC School of Oriental Languages became the Faculty of Oriental Studies. This was renamed the Faculty of Asian Studies in 1970. In 2006, ANU abolished the former distinction between research schools and faculties, creating a college structure combining both elements. The Research School of Pacific and Asian Studies (as it was re-named in 1994) joined the Faculty of Asian Studies in the new College of Asia and the Pacific.
