Welcome from the Dean of Arts

Over the past 50 years, Monash Arts has positioned itself as a faculty without borders. There are no limits to our thinking and no boundaries to our knowledge. We thrive on exploring new ways to see the world. This, combined with out extensive international connections, makes us one of the most popular Arts faculties in the world.

Welcome from the Dean of Arts Rae Frances

As Dean of the Faculty of Arts, I extend a very warm welcome to you and invite you to take some time to explore our challenging and exciting programs. We offer both first (or undergraduate) degrees as well as a range of postgraduate coursework programs and research degrees. At Monash Arts we are committed to providing you not just with an excellent academic education but also with an enjoyable educational experience that combines intellectual stimulation with social interaction and engagement with the wider world.

Our large and diverse Faculty is particularly strong in the humanities, performing arts, languages and social sciences, and encourages the development of cutting-edge studies that operate at the intersection of traditional academic disciplines.

You will find that our courses are rigorous and stimulating, preparing you for further study, or for a career in the global economy.

The Monash Arts community is spread across our Australian and overseas campuses, and includes distance education students across the nation and around the world.

We welcome international and study abroad students from many nations; international and Australian students mix in our classes, sharing experiences, understandings and knowledge, and forging friendships. Ours is a vibrant community where differences are celebrated and our students are encourgaed to become humane, tolerant and active citizens.

You can enrol in a single or double degree, or take Arts subjects as electives in a non-Arts degree. We also encourage the very best Arts graduates from Monash and around the world to apply for entry to our Honours year and postgraduate programs.

I invite you to consider joining the Monash Arts global community.

Rae Frances
Dean, Monash Arts
