  • PRODUCING RESEARCH THAT MATTERS

    Research in the humanities and social sciences makes a significant contribution to knowledge across a broad range of sectors and contributes to positive change in society in many facets of our lives. The Faculty of Arts provides excellent research that is focused and engaged and seeks to answer the questions: What forces shape our lives?

    What makes for a rich and meaningful existence? How can we change things for the better? Our work aids inter-cultural literacy, creates new understandings and informs government policy. Monash Arts research also contributes to international scholarly debate on issues as diverse as climate change, the ethics of robotics and anti-radicalisation.

    Our graduate research degreesWe offer a suite of graduate research degrees at the Masters (MA) and Doctoral (PhD) levels. The Master of Arts (MA) is 2 years full time or 4 years part time and the PhD must be completed within 3-4 years equivalent full time (EFT).

    Traditional and practice based degrees are available at both Masters and Doctoral level and involve the independent investigation of

    a research problem or topic that will make a significant contribution to the field of study. Students in both types of degrees are supported by a minimum of two supervisors for the duration of their degree.
