Academics with the School of Journalism, Australian and Indigenous Studies (JAIS) cover a wide array of multidisciplinary research interests for potential Higher Degree Research (HDR) students. We supervise Masters by Research and PhD by traditional mode or by exegesis.
JAIS staff has extensive research and supervision expertise in the areas of Media practice, Journalism and democratic practice, Australian studies, Investigative journalism, Communications, Media studies and new Technologies, Biography and Biographical studies, Tourism and mobility, Sport and Society, The growth of consumerism, Publishing studies and media reporting of climate change, War and memory, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, Rock Art Research, Visual histories, Indigenous Anthropology, Indigenous Community Partnership Research, Indigenous Narratives, Australian Indigenous Archaeology and Comparative Literature
With more than 35 HDR students within JAIS, our school has a vibrant learning community. We have bi-annual HDR Days and fortnightly HDR Seminars where HDR students come together to workshop ideas, give oral presentations and conduct thesis writing groups.
The first port of call for potential HDR students is the Faculty of Arts research showcase website which documents our staff research profiles.
Once a prospective HDR student sources a potential JAIS supervisor from this research profile, you then book a time to meet that academic to discuss your research project.
To apply for an HDR degree, please visit the Monash University Institute of Graduate Research website.
In 2013, Monash University will offer one of the most generous scholarship programs in Australia – we’re spending more than $30 million on postgraduate research scholarships alone.
You will also find scholarships to fund the cost of living while you study, to travel overseas to further your research, and to help get your work published.
