The masters program allows students to combine coursework with extensive independent research in Australian Studies. The thesis should demonstrate a critical application of specialist knowledge and make an independent contribution to existing scholarship in the area of research. Candidates may advance to the Doctor of Philosophy degree after successful completion of the masters or may apply to convert to a PhD at an earlier stage. An Honours grade of at least H2B (70%) average must be attained in the respective thesis and the advanced seminar components of the course to qualify for the award of the masters degree.

  • Have an advanced knowledge of the major debates in Australian Studies.
  • Have developed a specialised knowledge in Australian Studies.
  • Have produced a shorter thesis based on original research that reveals an awareness of the latest research and theoretical directions within their chosen sub-discipline of Australian Studies.
