Historical Studies

The Monash Historical Studies Graduate Research Program offers a lively student research culture and expert research supervision in a broad range of History-related fields. The Program is particularly strong in social and cultural history, the history of medicine and the body, Jewish history, environmental and urban history, medieval and renaissance history, religious history and oral history, among other specialisations.

In terms of area studies, our internationally-renowned researchers welcome prospective MA and PhD students in American, Asian, Australian, European, and transnational histories. In addition, our disciplinary excellence in historically-informed fields including Archaeology and Ancient History, Indigenous Cultures, Jewish, Holocaust, and Genocide Studies, as well as Religious Studies contribute to a broad cross-disciplinary graduate program that is unique in Australia and one of the best in the world. The Program aims to build the knowledge, skills and abilities that will help graduates become world-class scholars and researchers with professional skills of value to prospective employers in academia, industry, government, and the broader community.
