I chose Monash Arts because I wanted to explore the beginnings of civilisation. As we start living in a more globalised world, we’re not thinking about microcosms anymore. I don’t think of it as studying Ancient Egypt specifically, but human society more broadly.”

DEAN ADAIRBachelor of Laws (Honours) and Bachelor of Arts (Honours)

WHY STUDY WITH MONASH ARTS?If your ambition is to explore the world of ideas, cultures and places in an environment where you’ll be inspired, supported and challenged, then Monash Arts is the place to be.We consistently rank in the top 1 per cent of universities worldwide for humanities and social sciences, so you’ll be graduating from a course recognised by employers as being exceptional.

You’ll be learning from leading experts who are helping to solve some of the world’s most pressing issues, from border control to international development. And while they may have international reputations, our academics are renowned for being approachable, friendly and keen for you to succeed.

Flexibility and choice are also reasons students tell us they prefer Monash Arts. Flexible course structures mean you can make the most of the amazing opportunities on offer.

You can complete a comprehensive degree with the Bachelor of Arts, allowing you to tailor your course to suit your own needs and interests as they develop. The outcome will be a degree that’s unique to you.

Or you can select one of our specialist degrees, choosing from the Bachelor of Criminology, Bachelor of Global Studies, Bachelor of Media Communication, Bachelor of Music or Bachelor of Politics, Philosophy and Economics.

Along the way you’ll shape your own future as you explore experiences such as studying overseas, internships, field trips, double degrees, 40 areas of study, and leadership, career and volunteering programs.

UNDERSTANDING THE TERMINOLOGY Comprehensive degree In Monash Arts, this refers to the Bachelor of Arts. A comprehensive degree gives you the choice and flexibility to select your units (subjects), and requires you to complete 24 units, including specific requirements such as completing an Arts major and an Arts minor.

Specialist degree In Monash Arts, this refers to the Bachelor of Criminology, Bachelor of Global Studies, Bachelor of Media Communication, Bachelor of Music, and Bachelor of Politics, Philosophy and Economics. You need to complete 24 units, including specific requirements such as completing a specialisation. In a specialist degree, you start studying your chosen area of study straight away.

Units Sometimes called a subject, units are usually worth six credit points. You need to complete 144 credit points in a three-year degree. Some second-year and third-year units are worth 12 credit points, and are counted as two units – these units have a higher workload.

Areas of study An ‘area of study’ is a field of knowledge – for example, literary studies or sociology. Areas of study are sometimes called ‘disciplines’ See pages 23–34.

Major A major is eight units from the same area of study. In the Bachelor of Arts you can choose to study one or two majors, and you don’t have to decide on your major straight away.

Minor A minor is four units from the same area of study.

Specialisation An Arts specialisation consists of 10–12 units and is a requirement of any of the specialist degrees.

Elective There are eight units of free electives in your Arts course which can be taken from Arts, Business, IT or Science.

BE SUPPORTEDThere are many ways to engage with university life and be supported. Our Peers, Ambassadors, Leaders (PAL) and First in Family (FIF) programs are just two examples of how we support you. See page 2.

BACHELOR’S/ MASTER’S PROGRAM Plan ahead and graduate with a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in four years. See page 10.

GET CAREER READYThe future of work is human By studying humanities, social sciences or the performing arts, you’ll gain a thorough grounding in the key skills sought by employers, including agility, lateral thinking and improvisation; skills that surpass automation and are relevant to all careers.

Written and verbal communication You’ll develop strong skills in communication that enable you to express your ideas clearly, form an opinion, argue persuasively and think logically. You can even take electives in Academic and Professional Writing to increase your skills in language, writing and independent learning and further your understanding of professional communication.

Problem-solving and critical thinking You’ll learn how to evaluate complex information, analyse the causes of a problem and suggest alternative solutions.

Research and interdisciplinary thinkingYou’ll become a productive researcher, synthesising information from different resources in order to answer complicated questions. You’ll graduate with the ability to analyse problems from several different perspectives and arrive at a solution through recognising how each of the alternative approaches influences the others.

Leadership Decision-making, time management and goal-setting are qualities you’ll develop during your course.

Career options Our graduates go into as many career paths as there are majors. For example, there are linguists helping to improve the quality of life for the hearing impaired; social entrepreneurs helping people live more sustainably; and criminologists working on policy change in criminal justice. For more information about career options, see our areas of study section on pages 23–34.

We have partnerships with more than 150 universities worldwide, a study centre in Prato, Italy, and a campus in Malaysia. And if you’re a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Global Studies student, you’ll have access to our groundbreaking Global Immersion Guarantee.

STUDYING OVERSEAS GIVES YOU AN EDGE Research shows that students with international study experience:• have better grades throughout their degree• are more employable once they graduate• earn more throughout their career.

You’ll expand your worldview through experiencing different cultures and ways of doing things. You’ll build your self-confidence, and be more adaptable and independent. You’ll also develop skills in effective communication, collaboration and time management.

WHERE CAN I GO? Arts study tours Programs vary in length from two to four weeks. They’re taught intensively so you can complete a full unit in that time. Another bonus is that they run between semesters, which means you can continue to travel after completing your program and you could finish your degree sooner.

Some examples of what you could do include:• creating journalism stories while joining the

Engineers Without Borders study tour of Cambodia • undertaking archaeological fieldwork and excavation

in Italy • jamming with jazz masters in New York • engaging with cultural identities while considering

the key challenges they face in Cuba today • mastering Mandarin in China • comparing crime and social control in the USA or Asia • unravelling genocide in Europe.

Arts Semester in Prato Make the Monash Prato Centre your European study base. Close to Florence in the picturesque landscape of Tuscany, the Monash Prato Centre is located in the beautiful 18th-century Palazzo Vaj right in the centre of Prato.

The program is flexible, immersive and enriching. Divided into three-by-four-week intensive blocks, you can study for the full 12 weeks or take the option of including some travel time and study for four or eight weeks. Embrace the opportunity to learn from some of the world’s most renowned international scholars as you study fascinating subjects such as:• Intensive introductory Italian language • cultural diversity in contemporary Europe • the Renaissance in Florence • global connections: understanding cultural literacy• exploring Tuscany, tradition, innovation and sustainability.

Intensive language programs Studying overseas as part of your language major is a great way to immerse yourself in your chosen language and culture. Monash Arts offers a variety of faculty-led and endorsed language programs available to language students for credit.

Intercampus exchange to Monash Malaysia Established in 1998 in Bandar Sunway (18 kilometres from Kuala Lumpur), Monash Malaysia is Monash’s first international campus. Intercampus exchange to Monash Malaysia is available to all Monash Australia students, provided they have room within their course.

Exchange to a partner institution An exchange program involves studying with one of our partner universities around the world. You can go on exchange for one or two semesters. Financial assistance is available and there are no extra tuition fees. You can choose from more than 150 universities in 30 countries.

Study Abroad If your preferred overseas destination is not a Monash partner university, you can still choose to go there on Study Abroad. You’ll pay the host university’s tuition fees for the time you’re there, and you’re still able to access financial assistance to support your travel.

BACHELOR OF ARTSOur world needs graduates who thrive in an era of uncertainty and change. In the Monash Bachelor of Arts you’ll cultivate your intellect, foster your passions and develop your capacity to ask the questions and find the solutions required to transform our world. We support you to become enterprising and passionate advocates for social change.

The Bachelor of Arts is designed to give you maximum flexibility and choice. You can choose from more than 40 areas of study to build a genuinely transformative experience. The course is built around deeply enriching experiences, and via your elective units, offers you four signature elements through which to develop your unique graduate profile. You can choose from local and international internships, professional engagements and entrepreneurial opportunities, and the choice of more than 50 global immersion programs, preparing you to live and work in complex and culturally diverse environments, while building a community of like-minded peers.

The majorEight units make up your major. These units are from the same area of study3 – for example, anthropology, Chinese studies or politics. There are many units to choose from but there are also some compulsory units. These are called gateway, cornerstone and capstone units, which have been designed to help you consolidate your learning so you can get the most out of your major.

Gateway: a first-year foundation unit introducing you to the major.

Cornerstone: a second-year unit that focuses on making sure you have a solid grasp of your major.

Capstone: a third-year unit where you demonstrate advanced knowledge of your major. This could be a supervised research project or an internship with an industry partner.

The minorFour units make up your minor. They’re all from the same area of study, but this will be different to your major. There’s one, sometimes two, gateway units in your minor, but no cornerstone or capstone.

Arts electives and signature elementsYou’ll complete four units of Arts electives of which a minimum of two units will be from the signature elements options:

Global immersion: Broaden your knowledge and life experience by participating in the GIG, one of our other short study trips or a semester-long program.

Intercultural expertise: Learn to recognise your own cultural values and biases, and build skills to thrive in globalised work places and communities.

Professional experience: Through industry internships and placements, create networks and skills for your career development.

Innovation capability: Cultivate an innovation mindset as you develop your creative and enterprising abilities.

Free electivesThese are eight units that can be from Arts or another Monash course. You can structure these to suit your interests – for example, you could add a second major which gives you two areas of expertise.

Taking advantage of the flexible structureWhile there are aspects of the course structure that are fixed, (i.e. you must complete a major, a minor and four other Arts units), there’s still plenty of flexibility. That’s because we want you to take advantage of the choice and opportunities we offer, but it also means you can design the course to suit your needs and interests as they evolve. Some examples of what we mean by ‘flexible’ are:• you can decide your major in second-year• you can start your minor in second-year• you can use the eight free electives to make

up a second major, two minors, a minor plus electives, or just electives. These can be from Arts, Business, IT or Science.

Studying a Bachelor of Arts has been such an exciting roller coaster. By majoring in Chinese studies, I have been able to marry my passion for performing with my interest in language.

Through my studies, I have found a community of like-minded students that are making waves with their background in Arts. The highlight of my Arts degree would definitely have to be the people that I met on my recent trip to China.”

BACHELOR OF ARTS DOUBLE DEGREESMultiply your opportunities and become an expert in two fields by choosing a double degree course. This allows you to study towards two different bachelor’s degrees at the same time, providing you with more career flexibility and opportunities.

A double degree doesn’t mean double the work; in fact, it takes two years less to complete than if you studied the courses separately. A typical double degree takes four years and comprises 32 units, 16 from each course. Some double degrees are longer – for example, the Bachelor of Laws (Honours) and Bachelor of Arts combination takes five years.

There are many benefits to choosing a double degree. You’ll broaden your knowledge across two different fields, diversify your skill base and expand your career opportunities. A double degree may also fit the profession and field you want to work in – for example, working as an international development lawyer (Arts/Laws), an environmental journalist (Arts/Science), a business manager (Arts/Business) or a music critic (Arts/Music).

What your course will look likeThe Arts component consists of a major, minor and four Arts electives. The structure of the other degree will vary for each course.

What is a diploma?A diploma is an additional course of study taken alongside your bachelor’s degree. It’s the equivalent of eight units, which make up a major. You’ll cover first, second and third year units. Diplomas are taught alongside your degree and add an extra year of study.

Who’s eligible?Students from any Monash faculty who are studying a bachelor’s single or double degree.

Why study a diploma?By studying a Diploma of Languages or a Diploma of Liberal Arts, you will:• Diversify and deepen your skills and knowledge• Expand your career options• Continue with an area of study you have a keen interest in, or try

something completely different.

Diploma of LanguagesThis diploma allows you to study Chinese, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean or a European language (French, German, Italian or Spanish). There are different entry levels so you can commence as a beginner in the language or with a language background.

Diploma of Liberal ArtsExpand your studies by choosing any Arts area of study available as a major, except for languages.

Applying for entryYou can apply for entry to either of these diplomas only after you’ve accepted your offer into your main course at Monash.

BACHELOR’S/ MASTER’S PROGRAMWith Monash Arts you can graduate with a bachelor’s and a master’s* degree in just four years. After completing two years of your bachelor’s course, and providing you’re a high-achieving student, you can take master’s-level units as your electives in third-year.

BACHELOR OF CRIMINOLOGYImprove responses to crime and criminality.

Criminology is the study of crime and social control. Crime – how we define it, how we understand its causes and the ways we respond to it – provides a window into society’s challenges, values and aspirations. This course offers students a world-leading program delivered by a team of outstanding teachers and researchers.

You’ll consider the local, national and global aspects of crime and justice, and become familiar with a range of lenses for understanding and assessing the impact of society’s changing responses to crime and justice. You’ll gain an understanding of victimisation and perpetration, inequality and its impacts, and approaches to understanding crime. Throughout the course you’ll develop your capabilities via the key themes of expert knowledge, global reach and focus, and collaboration and innovation.

Expert knowledgeWith its own advisory board, the Bachelor of Criminology brings into play the advice and dynamic perspectives of industry experts, meaning our students benefit from current insights into industry developments.

You’ll learn about crime committed by individuals, groups, organisations and states, and the mechanisms of the criminal justice system, including police, courts and corrections. Options are available to develop knowledge of specific criminal concerns, such as sexual violence, gendered violence, punishment, criminal justice processes, marginalisation, drugs, cybercrime, risk and surveillance, victimisation and perpetration, youth crime, and crime prevention and transnational justice practices.

Global reach and focusThroughout the course you’ll be challenged to apply abstract knowledge to real-world problems of crime and justice, and develop solutions. You’ll also have the opportunity to travel internationally and meet criminal justice experts from across the world through a selection of exclusive field trips.

The field trips offer a truly immersive learning experience to complement the academic knowledge you’ll gain in class, allowing you to engage in context and gain a genuine understanding of the human realities behind the study of criminology.

Collaboration and innovationThrough multiple opportunities for engagement with industry, you’ll gain the experience needed to be workplace ready. In the professional project unit, you’ll work closely with our industry partners, opening up new pathways and opportunities for your career, and capping off your criminology study by bringing together your knowledge and skills in your final year. The professional project features real-life scenarios, and your work will be assessed by both academics and industry experts.

Further opportunities and internships are available to you through Arts internships, both in Australia and around the world, so you can get hands-on experience while you gain study credit.

Double degrees The Bachelor of Criminology can be paired with the:• Bachelor of Arts• Bachelor of Information Technology • Bachelor of Laws (Honours).

INTERNATIONAL STUDY OPPORTUNITIESYou’ll have opportunities to travel internationally to meet criminal justice experts through a selection of exclusive field trips. Study tours include:• Crime and criminal justice in Asia• Comparative criminology in the US• Human rights in the criminal

justice sphere.

BACHELOR OF GLOBAL STUDIES If you aspire to become a leader in creating social change, then the Bachelor of Global Studies is the course for you. You’ll learn how to critically analyse global challenges facing cultures and communities around the world, and how to apply your knowledge to these challenges and devise imaginative and well-informed solutions to help solve them.

The Bachelor of Global Studies has many exciting features, including core units on leadership development, project-based learning, internship placements with industries and organisations who are leading advocates for social change around the world, a broad range of electives that train you to think across different disciplines, an overseas study component, and the option of doing a double degree with Laws (Honours), Science or Commerce.

Overseas studyIntegral to this course is overseas study that can be completed across a full semester or taken intensively. You could take units offered at a Monash international location, join in one of our many study tours, or study at one of our prestigious partner universities. It’s compulsory to take at least three overseas study units, but you can take more if you want. With partnerships with more than 150 universities worldwide, our study centre in Prato, Italy, and a campus in Malaysia, you’re spoilt for choice.

Engaging with industryWith its own advisory board, the Bachelor of Global Studies is in a unique position to draw on the advice and perspectives of industry experts. The board consists of professionals from diverse backgrounds with direct links to business, government and the social sector. They provide vital guidance, advice and feedback to inform our program development and to ensure the course delivers the best outcomes for you.

Double degreesThe Bachelor of Global Studies can be taken as a double degree with the: • Bachelor of Commerce • Bachelor of Laws (Honours)• Bachelor of Science.

Double degrees allow you to combine two areas of interest and gain expertise in both. As a graduate you’ll have greater career flexibility, and because the double degree is completed in a shorter time than two single degrees, you’ll be saving time and money.

InternshipsThere are many opportunities within the course to take an internship, where you can apply your knowledge to a professional work environment and gain valuable experience and insights into the ‘real-world’ environment. Internships are available with a wide range of organisations and count as credit towards your degree.

Course structureThree core units on ‘Leadership for social change’:These units are exclusive to the Bachelor of Global Studies and are taken over three years. You’ll learn about forms of leadership, drivers of social change and how to apply your learning in practical and professional real-life contexts.

Classes are mainly workshops where you’ll engage in problem-based learning and develop skills in creativity, teamwork, cross-cultural collaboration, critical thinking, self-learning and analytical writing.

Twelve units from one of the following specialisations: • Cultural competence • Human rights • International relations • International studies.

Eight free elective units: With these units you can study units from Arts or from another area such as Information Technology, Science or Business. You could also use these electives to do an internship or study overseas.

SPECIALISATIONSCultural competenceExtend your studies of leadership, culture and globalisation by focusing on communication across cultural borders. By studying one of eight internationally important languages – Chinese, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean or a European language (French, German, Italian or Spanish) – you’ll deepen your cross-cultural skills and knowledge. All languages are available for beginners through to those with proficiency. You’ll also study topics such as managing intercultural communication, and the skills you build will enable you to apply your knowledge in real-world contexts.

Human rightsIn the era of globalisation, one of the most important concepts in international affairs is human rights. What are human rights? Are human rights culturally relative? How can human rights be justified? You’ll learn how human rights help to address issues such as global poverty, unequal access to medicine, warfare, terrorism, children’s rights, humanitarian intervention, torture, surveillance and more.

International relationsWhat are the dynamics of global politics and economics? Gain an understanding of the relationships between political institutions, international organisations, and governmental and non-governmental actors. Grasp evidence-based explanations to study war and conflict, development, financial and other crises at a global level. You’ll undertake in-depth study of topics of contemporary significance such as terrorism and political violence, global governance, international security and foreign policy.

International studiesIn order to be competitive in the international marketplace of products, ideas and knowledge, we need to understand how people experience different cultures. International studies develops this understanding by exploring the issues and events that have shaped and continue to shape our world. You’ll examine such diverse topics as the role of cities as drivers of change, migrant and refugee experiences, power and poverty, and tradition and popular culture. In doing so, you’ll develop a solid understanding of European and Asian cultural studies, and of networks of relations between Europe, Asia and Australia.

Learning in different contexts in different countries enriches the learning experience so much. Students work together as a team to tackle some of the world’s most pressing issues.”

In this specialisation you’ll be introduced to areas central to philosophy, including political philosophy, ethics and logic.

Economic analysisEconomic analysis provides an advanced understanding of the theories explaining and analysing the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services, with a focus on how individuals, households, firms and governments interact and how economies work.
