Arts - 0020
Monash Arts is renowned for innovative, engaging and high quality research in the humanities and social sciences and the Research Graduate School is committed to providing graduate research education of the highest quality in a stimulating, supportive and professional environment.
A PhD offered in Arts takes the form of the Monash Doctoral Program – a PhD for the 21st century. At the core of the program is an extensive, independent research project on an agreed topic, supported by a minimum of two expert academic supervisors. This is enhanced by professional development activities or coursework units that provide you with the skills required to make an impact in academia, industry, government or the wider community. Your study will result in a research thesis or alternative approved output, which makes a valuable contribution to the current body of knowledge on your chosen topic.
While a general Doctor of Philosophy in your chosen field is the most commonly taken PhD, you can also opt for one of the following specialised areas of study:
- Creative Writing
- Music Composition
- Music Performance
- Theatre Performance
- Translation Studies
Arts research graduates now seek careers across a wide range of professions, and the coursework and professional development built into the Monash Doctoral Program are designed to impart skills and knowledge that will assist you in conducting your research, and prepare you for future leadership and success. Activities cover general topics such as innovation, collaboration, networking and project management along with workshops and seminars that deepen your discipline-specific expertise.
You will be assigned to the professional development activities or coursework study most relevant to your research focus from the following areas:
