The Master of Philosophy will allow you to undertake substantial independent research on your chosen topic while supported by a minimum of two academic supervisors. You will produce a research thesis (and if studying the integrated water management specialisation, also a coursework component) and your research will make a contribution to the current body of knowledge on your chosen topic. 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.
