Theatre, Performance and Music

The Theatre, Performance & Music Graduate Research Program at Monash offers one of the most comprehensive graduate research programs in the fields of theatre, performance and music in Australia. Other than the conventional thesis-only PhD, the Program houses two practice-based doctoral programs: PhD (Theatre Performance) and PhD (Music).

All of the graduate research courses in the TPM Program are designed to inspire cutting-edge scholarship and provides students with opportunities to engage with the industry and community. We offer innovative, robust and socially engaged research and practice programs in performance theory and practice and are internationally recognised for our work in gender, sexualities and performance, adaptation and audience reception studies, mental health and performance, site-based performance, performance philosophy, and autoethnography. Our progressive, holistic and culturally diverse music program excels in classical, jazz and popular music performance, composition and holds an internationally renowned reputation for research in ethnomusicology and musicology.
