Research & Engagement

The School of Social Sciences is a leading research powerhouse in anthropology, criminology, human geography, politics, international relations, sociology, and gender studies. Across our disciplines we have particular strengths represented through our six key research clusters: community, culture and place; technologies and digital societies; healthy and thriving societies; climate and sustainability; institutions, power and coercion; and inclusive peace and security.

We also have strong research networks across Monash, Australia, and the globe.

Our School is distinguished by its capacity to attract nationally competitive grants, undertake high quality industry collaborations, and provide rich research training opportunities.
