“My experience attending ITB Berlin was incredible. Being around such passionate, knowledgeable people gave me a more in-depth, expansive and realistic view of the global industry. I was able to interact with people I’d never have otherwise met and hopefully made connections that will set me on the path to my goals. It’s an experience not to be missed.”
Ms Peyton Hinson, Master of International Sustainable Tourism Management (MISTM) student from the USA.

“The opportunity to network with some of the world’s leading tourism entrepreneurs, leaders and policy makers including the United Nation’s World Tourism Organisation, was a career defining moment for me.”
– Mr Peter Clay, Master of Tourism Student, Australia

Students attended seminars on the latest trends and topics such as;

  • the continued growth of the industry (from 1 billion travellers in 2012 to 1.8 billion in 2030),
  • the major issues surrounding sustainable industry development,
  • the growth of corporate social responsibility within the sector and the latest strategies in social media marketing.

In addition students heard from industry experts in the fields of media management and destination marketing and were hosted by Tourism Australia at the Australia stand.

“A study tour with great learning and career opportunities”

“This study tour is a great opportunity for our students to hear about the latest trends in the industry as well as to gain an understanding of the global dimensions of the sector.
A key theme this year has been the role of tourism as a tool for development in emerging economies.
Students also have the opportunity to interact directly with their potential future employers”
– Program coordinator Dr Jeff Jarvis.

Master of International Sustainable Tourism Management

As the tourism industry continues to grow and expand throughout the world, sustainability is playing an increasingly influential role in how the industry is governed, managed and developed. There is a growing demand for well-qualified managers who not only have a broad and deep understanding of global business activity, but a clear insight into the consequences of planning and policy-making on the environment, society, culture and the economy. The United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) forecasts the growth rate for emerging economies will be double that of advanced economies in the next two decades, and that a sustainable industry can therefore play a significant role in achieving the millennium development goals.

By drawing on best practice in the tourism industry, policy governance and research, the Master of International Sustainable Tourism Management equips students with a comprehensive understanding of the relationship between tourism and sustainable development. There is a particular emphasis on emerging economies and the development of small and medium sized enterprises within them. The course looks at how tourism can be compatible with the development of sustainable organisations, urban and rural development/regeneration, natural resource management and wildlife conservation, as well as the diversifying benefits from international and domestic tourism. It facilitates the development of skills and techniques to develop tourism policies and practices in a global setting and to manage tourism development and enterprises in the direction of more sustainable practice.

Special features of the course

The course is structured around core units, electives, a research thesis or an internship. There is a diverse range of electives to choose from enabling students to tailor the course to suit their own interests and career aspirations.

International field schools and exchange

Students are encouraged to take part of their studies overseas in order to broaden their understanding of the international market and the role that a sustainable tourism industry can play in emerging economies. The course provides the option of attending a partially funded intensive field school to study the patterns of development within an emerging economy in the Asia Pacific region such as Fiji, Vietnam or Cambodia.

Master of Applied Linguistics

The Master of Applied Linguistics offers professionals in a wide variety of disciplines the opportunity to expand their knowledge of how language works in the context of globalisation.

Applied linguistics is one of the fastest growing fields of study in the humanities and is becoming increasingly recognised for its ability to solve language related problems at a micro and macro level.

Linguistics at Monash University was ranked No.19 in the world in the QS World University Rankings by Subject for 2013.

This course is ideal for language teachers, interpreters, editors and others working with language problems in increasingly multilingual and multicultural societies such as Australia.

Student choose one stream according to the area they wish to specialise in.

General Applied Linguistics

Stream coordinator: Dr Louisa Willoughby

This stream is designed to give students a strong understanding of language structures and use across a variety of languages.

In the core units, students explore the sounds and grammar of Australian English and how these differ from other English varieties and languages around the world. Students also explore how we use language differently according to context and how language varies between different social groups.

In elective units, students have the opportunity to specialise in areas such as literacy, second language acquisition, or language and identity.

This stream is ideal for a range of professionals, including interpreters, editors, policy makers and health care professionals – in short, anyone working with language issues in a multilingual and multicultural context.

Japanese Applied Linguistics

Stream coordinator: Dr Robyn Spence-Brown

This stream is designed to further students’ understanding of second and foreign language acquisition, language teaching, language contact and intercultural communication with particular reference to Japanese.

It also aims to develop students’ skills in critical reading, the ability to write critically, and the ability to design a research project where appropriate.

Students may include up to 24 points of advanced level Japanese language units in their degree.

This stream is ideal for current Japanese language teachers, those looking to build a career as a Japanese language teacher, or anyone with an intermediate (or higher) level of Japanese proficiency looking to develop higher proficiency in the language and a deeper understanding of sociolinguistic and intercultural communication issues in contemporary Japanese.

Students must have competence in Japanese at an intermediate level or higher to take this stream.

English as an International Language

Stream Coordinator: Professor Farzad Sharifian

This stream is designed to give students in-depth knowledge of issues surrounding the teaching and use of English as an international language. It explores issues that relate to the sociocultural, conceptual and ideological considerations that relate to the spread of English around the world.

It also addresses issues such as the speaker’s identity, teaching of English as an international language, and the use of English as a Lingua Franca in international professional contexts.

This stream is ideal for EAL teachers, policy makers or anyone considering taking up a position teaching or working in a country where English is nto the native language of the majority of the population.

Master of Bioethics

Over the past two decades, there has been increasing community concern about ethics in science, especially in the health sciences and the biological sciences.

The Master of Bioethics is a response to that concern, and will enable those taking it to deepen their understanding of ethical issues in health care and the biological sciences.

While the course is particularly well-suited to health care professionals and scientists who face complex ethical issues in their working lives, it will also be valuable for those involved in the formulation of public policy and law regarding these issues, as well as for anyone who simply wishes to explore issues of public concern in greater depth.

The course provides an interdisciplinary education that covers questions of life and death, ethical issues in patient care, legal issues in bioethics, and ethical issues in professional life.

Monash-WHO Fellowship

Master of Bioethics students who have completed at least one semester of the course are eligible to apply for an annual fellowship of $9000 to work during the Australian summer as an intern in the Department of Ethics, Equity, Trade and Human Rights at the World Health Organisation in Geneva.

For more information, visit the Monash-WHO Fellowship webpage.

The course is particularly designed to focus on themes relevant to those employed, or seeking employment, in communications and media industries (e.g. electronic journalism, policy formulation, public relations, and tourism marketing), and those wishing to expand their expertise for teaching purposes or further study.

Master of Cultural Economy

The Master of Cultural Economy  is Australia’s most innovative postgraduate program designed to prepare you for careers in a range of employment areas where culture, economy and policy intersect.

In the past decade, cities and national governments have placed culture at the centre of their development agendas. They have invested in multimillion dollar art museums and promoted creative industries as part of their innovation and research and development strategies. Local communities have also looked to arts and culture for a sense of identity, resilience and new forms of employment. International agencies such as UNESCO are strongly promoting the cultural and creative economy as a key element of sustainable development across the ‘Global South’.

Special features of the course

In Australia and internationally, individuals are seeking employment, fulfillment and a sense of community engagement through diverse forms of participation in this cultural economy. They are finding work as freelancers or they set up as small commercial and not-for-profit businesses; they work with corporate, publicly funded, charitable and community entities; they work in urban, suburban and rural settings, and across developing, emerging and developed economies.

This cultural economy is complex and diverse, where cultural and economic dynamics combine in ways that transgress traditional disciplinary and policy boundaries. New career paths are emerging across industries, policy bodies and communities where traditional approaches to ‘creative entrepreneurship’ and ‘arts and cultural management’ become simplistic and inflexible.

Industry Relevance

The MCE provides a broad guide to this cultural economy as well as the detailed individual road maps needed to achieve your ambitions within it. It will:

  • provide essential background and orientation through this complex field
  • provide up to date knowledge with a focus upon current industry, policy and community developments
  • emphasise critical learning that allows students to reflect on individual current practices and aspirations
  • facilitate concrete and collaborative project work to test new knowledge and skills.

The MCE is suitable for:

  • those working or looking to work in the independent arts and creative/cultural industries
  • professionals working within cultural policy and governance
  • practitioners and activists working within communities to promote cultural economic development in a variety of circumstances
  • international students who seek to further their understanding of the creative industries, arts-led regeneration, cultural clusters, creative city branding and similar developments.

Program Strengths

  • it is a program taught by experts who are global leaders in industry, government and academic research in the cultural industries, and who have worked in many different countries
  • it is interdisciplinary and collaborative: students learn through concrete research and project work
  • it is based at the heart of Australia’s cultural capital, Melbourne, providing a rich context for fieldwork study
  • strong global links: opportunities exist for students to undertake international fieldwork and coursework as part of their studies
  • strategic industry links: students participate in industry fieldwork as part of their studies.

Master of International Relations

Our world is being shaped by big questions about global justice, war, peace, social movements, and inter-state relations. These questions help define what this Master of International Relations is all about. In short, this degree offers students a window into the diverse and dynamic world of politics in the 21st century.

Topics covered explore the security, ethical, legal, and economic dimensions of international relations. There are opportunities to examine key issues in foreign policy, world order, European studies, crisis management, and terrorism. In addition, new units in the gender, development, migration and governance aspects of global politics are being introduced.

A key aim of the degree is to help students make sense of this complexity by providing the analytical perspectives and skills needed to see both the ‘bigger picture’ and comprehend the detailed aspects of specific issues. All of our staff are active researchers who incorporate their expertise into the teaching program.

Students have the opportunity to study abroad, and to develop research interests in a number of areas. The Master of International Relations also offers a potential pathway into higher research degrees such as a PhD (subject to conditions).

Andrew Newman

CROPPED-newman-150x150Andrew completed the Master of International Relations after joining us from La Trobe University. On graduating, Andrew went on to complete a PhD at Monash examining US efforts to assist Moscow in the safe management of Russian nuclear weapons.

After leaving Monash, Andrew spent three years with the Nuclear Science and Technology Office at the Australian Embassy in Washington DC. From there he went to Harvard University’s ‘Project on Managing the Atom’, where he worked on reducing the risks of nuclear theft and terrorism worldwide, and examined constraints on the development of nuclear energy.

Andrew is now senior program officer at the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) in Washington. The NTI is ‘a non-profit, non-partisan organisation with a mission to strengthen global security by reducing the risk of use and preventing the spread of nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons and to work to build the trust, transparency, and security that are preconditions to the ultimate fulfillment of the [nuclear weapons] Non-Proliferation Treaty’s goals and ambitions’ (http://www.nti.org/). His work focuses on the relationship between the development of civil nuclear energy and the efforts to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons.

Master of Journalism

The Master of Journalism is for people who want to enter a career in journalism, and for working journalists who want to extend their skills to new areas and explore the intellectual basis of their practice.

Students will work with award-winning journalists and academics with strong industry links as they cultivate high level skills in research and reporting across all media – print, online, radio and video – and explore the role of the media in contemporary society.

Monash journalism graduates are smart, skilled and ready. Media employers seek them out, but their skills are also in demand in other industries including public relations, communication, editing, publishing, digital and video/audio production.

Future of Journalism

Philip Chubb, Head of the Journalism Department, and Gold Walkley winner, talks about the importance of journalism in our society:

“There is no more important job than journalism. It plays a crucial role by scrutinising and holding to account those in power and with influence; it exposes corruption and shed light on systemic failings. Its essence is in finding the truth and telling the story, whether in politics, fashion or sport… The field of interest is as irrelevant to the quality of the journalism as the medium through which the story is told.

As a Monash journalism graduate you will inform and shape the future. The only question is: what is the world you would like to create?”
