Monash Arts Students learn about the diverse world in which we live, and how we might live in the future. They are encouraged to think about cultural, linguistic and geographical difference and to ask how and why these variations have occurred over time. Studying Arts encourages students to take an innovative approach in tackling world issues and fosters a global perspective.
Arts students think about how communication works, how people make themselves understood to others, and how they make meaning through artistic expression. Arts students have the ability to assess evidence, and the research skills to acquire information. They use these skills to find out why we are the way we are.
To do this, they need to think critically and creatively. Arts students are self-reliant researchers, seeking out a variety of resources in order to answer complicated questions. They are expert communicators who can convey complex ideas in speech and writing. They resist easy answers, or simplistic solutions.
Arts students strive to develop an ethical and intellectual framework within which they can understand what it means to be human, and how this changes over time.
