Monash University was established in 1958 and in little more than 50 years has earned an international reputation for research and teaching excellence. In the past 10 years we have built on our ambitions to become the largest university in Australia and have extended our reach across the globe. We have an international network of more than 270,000 graduates and have built campuses and centres in Malaysia, India and South Africa. We are the only Australian university active on four continents. It says something about our ambition, that for a relatively young university, Monash ranks above world standards in almost all disciplines.

The Good Universities Guide, Australia’s most authoritative independent university ratings publication, has rated Monash highly in the categories that matter: Student demand (2012) Research grants (2012) Cultural diversity (2012) Student-staff ratio (2012) Getting a full-time job (2012) Monash is ranked at 60 in the world (the QS World University Rankings 2011): Discipline ranking Top 50 in Art & Humanities Top 50 in Life Sciences & Biomedicine Top 50 in Social Sciences & Medicine Top 60 in Engineering & Technology Subject ranking

Monash is a member of the Group of Eight, an alliance of leading Australian universities recognised for their excellence in teaching and research. Group of Eight universities produce graduates who find full-time employment sooner, begin on higher salaries, and are more likely to move onto postgraduate studies than graduates from other Australian universities.

Monash University is the only Australian member of the prestigious M8 Alliance of Academic Health Centres and Medical Universities. This global grouping includes Johns Hopkins University, the Sorbonne in Paris, Imperial College London and the Charite in Berlin.

Monash University’s global reputation attracts students from around the world and once you graduate you’ll be part of an international network of more than 270,000 alumni.

to your Your career

Your experience of the world

Our degrees are globally recognised, giving our graduates an extra edge – helping them thrive in the international job market.

We believe every student is an international student. Today’s graduates will compete with the rest of the world for jobs. Monash courses ensure they are exposed to a global perspective from day one.

Monash University is regarded as the best university in Australia by global CEOs and chairmen when recruiting graduates. (The New York Times, October 2011). Many Monash courses – including engineering, law, business, commerce, pharmacy, journalism and science – offer internships and work placements connecting students to industry. These programs help students define their career goals and expose them to industry first-hand. The placements also enable students to gain credit towards their degree.

We encourage students to build international experiences to complement their study through exchange programs, intercampus exchanges to our Malaysian and South African campuses, study tours, international internships and in-country programs. We have more than 115 exchange partner universities in 25 countries and have campuses and centres in Malaysia, India and South Africa.

In 2012, we partnered with the University of Warwick (UK) to form a unique global alliance. This partnership will raise our international profile and provide unparalleled access to new opportunities and benefits to our students. We have also negotiated a joint venture for research and graduate studies in China. Our global network is one reason many foreign governments and scholarship providers choose Monash University as the destination for their best and brightest.

Your development It’s all about choice. You choose the type of skills you want to develop, you choose when you are ready to specialise, and you choose what sort of experiences you want to have and when you want to have them. At Monash, you take classes relevant to your chosen career from your first weeks on campus. This approach is adopted across the University – in law, medicine, science, architecture, education, nursing and engineering – and helps you develop a deeper understanding of your chosen profession sooner. It also means you begin working towards your career from day one.

Working towards a cleaner environment

Stopping the spread of disease

By harnessing the power of the sun

Mai Bui, (BBiomedSci/BE 2011), was part of a unique project to remove carbon dioxide from exhaust gas at a brown coal power plant. The project has the potential to create a carbon neutral power generation scheme.

Professor Geoffrey Setswe, Head of the School of Health Sciences, is assisting the South African National AIDS Council to translate HIV research evidence into policies and programs to fight the HIV/AIDS epidemic.

Monash alumnus Jon Liow (BID(Hons) 2011) designed a simple, sustainable and affordable waterpurification device, which has the potential to help eradicate disease and save lives. The Solarball, developed as Mr Liow’s final year project during his Bachelor of Industrial Design, can produce up to three litres of clean water every day and could be the difference between life and death for thousands of people each year.

Working for justice The Reprieve Australia Internship program allows Monash law students to spend time in the United States working with prisoners on death row. The program places interns in capital defence and associated offices in the southern United States for periods of three months or more at a time. Past students have interned in Louisiana, Texas, Georgia and Mississippi.

Specialised degrees

Double degrees

Honours

You can choose a broad generalist degree such as arts, science or business and gain an insight into many aspects of your field of interest. This could lead to specialisation later.

Focus on a specific area of interest or choose a degree that leads to professional accreditation (such as law, medicine, engineering, IT, education or pharmacy) and graduate ready to practise.

Enrol in two degrees at the same time in two completely different disciplines (such as Arts/Law or Science/Engineering). As doubledegrees are taken together, with the electives from one degree counting towards the other, it usually only takes a year longer than it takes to complete a single degree. A double degree is a great way to tailor your study to suit your tastes and talents while increasing your job prospects. Double degrees are offered by all 10 Monash faculties.

If you are a high-achieving and motivated student, honours can help you: — explore an area of interest in detail — pursue a masters degree or a PhD — enhance your employment opportunities. Honours is usually an extra year of study at the end of your undergraduate degree. You normally apply for honours in your third year of study, but some courses include an honours year in their structure.

Matthew Vrettas Bachelor of Architectural Design Matthew Vrettas is a global citizen with a bright future. Moving from South Africa to study, Matthew chose Monash based on the University’s global focus and the flexibility of the Architectural Design degree. “The networking opportunities created by Monash’s global connections, along with fantastic resources, staff and tutors, made Monash’s architecture program an obvious choice for me. The large list of electives was also attractive, along with the opportunity to travel abroad to different campuses and centres within Monash.” Matthew is eager to take advantage of these international opportunities, and he has been awarded a travelling scholarship to help him study at the Monash University Prato Centre, in Italy. While the next few years will be busy for Matthew as he completes his Bachelor degree and then the Master of Architecture, the future beckons and he has his sights set high. “I would like to work in Melbourne and establish a name for myself, and possibly one day start my own architectural firm.” “The Architecture course is a lot of work and it can test you, but it is incredibly interesting and opens up a vast number of possibilities to explore.”

Arts With almost 10,000 students and 60 areas of study, we are the largest faculty of our kind in Australia. One of the benefits of being so big is the extensive choices we offer you, not just in what you study, but where. www.arts.monash.edu

Faculty overview We offer you many opportunities to study overseas. Each year our students travel to destinations around the world to explore different cultures and new ways of learning. No matter where you want to go, our Arts degrees can get you there. The flexibility of our course structure allows you to specialise from day one, take units from other faculties, transfer or take on a double degree. It’s about choice We offer four distinct ways for you to get the qualification you need: a general Arts degree, specialist degrees, double degrees and diplomas. The general Arts degree is suited to anyone who is keen to explore new frontiers and who is still searching for an area in which to specialise. Specialist degrees are for those who want to study a particular area in-depth, for example the Bachelor of Journalism. Double degrees give you the opportunity to complete two degrees at the same time and specialise in two different fields, for example the Bachelor of Journalism/Bachelor of Science. And it doesn’t take twice as long. In most cases you’ll only be adding one extra year to your degree. Diplomas are the equivalent of an Arts major and are popular with people looking to enhance a degree other than Arts, for example, the Bachelor of Engineering/ Diploma of Languages.

Study overseas and fast-track your degree Studying Arts is all about cultures, languages and societies so it makes perfect sense for you to study overseas and immerse yourself in the culture of the country you are studying. We have an outstanding number of opportunities for you to travel and study. At our Prato Centre in Italy we offer 20 exciting programs in history, politics, languages, Australian Studies and communications. You can complete a whole subject in two weeks, between semesters. We have in-country programs for languages and our Chinese in-country program is the largest of its kind in the world. There are study tours to Africa and Europe in Geography and Environmental Studies and if you study music with us there’s a chance to visit and perform in Italy, New York and Brazil. There are also opportunities to study overseas for a full semester with study abroad or exchange, but whichever option you choose, your overseas study experience will inevitably be rewarding both personally and academically.

Iona Roy Bachelor of Arts as a participant in the Dean’s Scholars Program. (Graduated 2011). Diploma of Languages (Indonesian) (Graduated 2011). Currently studying Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in politics. Iona enrolled in Arts with an open mind, keen to expand her knowledge, but with no clear direction about a career path or where her studies might lead. “I discovered during my time at Monash that I am really passionate about working in the development and aid sector,” says Iona. She has been on exchange to Sciences Po in Paris, gone on a study tour to Rwanda, taken internships in Kigali, South Africa and volunteered with development agencies. “The chance to travel overseas has deeply enhanced my view of the world and other cultures. I have picked up a new language (Indonesian) and developed a passion for politics, international development and current affairs.”

The Monash online Course Finder lists courses available for study in 2012. New courses commencing in 2013 will be listed from July 2012. www.monash.edu/study/coursefinder

Featured courses

Arts (Languages) and Bachelor of Arts (Communication). Double degrees are also available, giving the arts degree a partnership with a qualification in law, science, business or teaching.

Bachelor of Arts The Bachelor of Arts is a flexible degree that allows students to match their academic interests with their career goals to create the ideal course. Arts provides a set of general, portable and lasting skills vital to any career, such as the ability to research an issue, present an argument, analyse information, communicate clearly and relate well to people.

Once you’ve graduated

Once you’ve graduated Monash arts graduates work in fields as diverse as broadcasting, bioethics, politics, media and communications.

Bachelor of Arts (Global)

What makes it great

Monash has a tradition as Australia’s leading international university and the Bachelor of Arts (Global) provides the opportunity to gain a truly international education.

The degree can be constructed to be broad-based or specialised. A general arts degree allows you to explore a wide range of subjects including a major area of study from arts or another faculty such as business. A structured degree is more vocationally focussed, enabling you to specialise in a particular area.

What makes it great Students must study overseas for at least one semester of the degree, but may do so for up to three semesters, either at Monash Malaysia, Monash South Africa or an approved partner university anywhere in the world.

Examples of structured degrees include Bachelor of Arts (Journalism), Bachelor of

The University may provide grants of up to A$4000 to students who study abroad as part of its commitment to encourage an international learning experience.

The international perspective gained from this degree will help shape careers in international relations or trade, foreign affairs, diplomacy, politics and government, environmental research and planning, and with international not-for-profit organisations.

Bachelor of Journalism Journalism at Monash has moved away from traditional courses centering on print and integrates all technologies in the various fields of study. At the end of first year, students will have competencies in news reporting for print, online, video and radio. In second year they move into current affairs and features formats and in third year they specialise in a particular

genre – political, business, sport and cultural, investigative and environmental reporting. What makes it great Monash has the largest undergraduate journalism program in Australia. Students are offered an unrivalled array of specialisations and access to a wide range of electives including languages, environment and sustainability, politics, international studies, criminology, human rights theory, counter-terrorism, history and theatre. You can combine Journalism with Business and Commerce and graduate with a double degree in only four years. Once you’ve graduated Graduates of this course have the theoretical and practical skills to take up work as journalists at the local, regional, metropolitan or international level, both in print and online, or they can apply their skills to the fields of corporate or government communications.

Bachelor of Commerce

Business or Commerce?

The complexity and pace of the modern international business world requires graduates who can think analytically, act decisively and have a broad knowledge base. Monash Bachelor of Business courses combine intensive study in business fundamentals with practical applications, and provide a career-focused education that is particularly relevant in today’s rapidly changing business environment. Areas of specialisation offered include accounting, banking and finance, business law, business strategy, data visualisation and modelling, econometrics, economics, finance, human resource management, international business, management, marketing, psychology, quantitative economics, sports management and tourism.

You’ll gain a thorough understanding of the workings of the economy and business through this broad-based, flexible and multi-disciplinary degree. You’ll develop your capacity for logical analysis and conceptual thinking, and build the knowledge and skills required to manage public and private enterprises. Depending on the subjects you choose, you’ll be able to specialise in two different commerce areas of study. Or you can choose to focus on one commerce area of study, and another area from a completely different discipline. Commerce specialisations include accounting, actuarial studies, business law and taxation, business modelling, econometrics and business statistics, economics, finance, financial and insurance mathematics, international commerce, management studies, marketing and sustainability.

There are many similarities between the Bachelors of Business and Commerce. Industry placements are available in both and both provide a strong foundation for a career in business. Although the subjects offered are different, similar topics are covered in many areas. However, when studying subjects within the Bachelor of Business, there may be a greater emphasis on the practical application of theory. The Bachelor of Commerce offers a more theoretical or analytical approach, where the focus is on conceptual thinking. In addition, there will be a higher level of the application of mathematical knowledge in some areas of the Bachelor of Commerce – for instance, in economics, econometrics and finance subjects. It is important to remember that, at Monash, you are not locked into a particular program. Because our courses are so flexible, once you have enrolled in either the Business or Commerce degree, if you still want to get the ‘best of both’ you can choose to study subjects from the alternate course providing you have the appropriate prerequisites and there is capacity.

Once you’ve graduated There are few fields of study that open up as many career opportunities as business. Our graduates are employed around the world. They work in large financial organisations and small start-ups. They work in the media, in arts, in advertising and in health. They work for the government, for corporations and for themselves. The range of career options available to you depends on the subjects you choose but, given we offer such a wide range of subjects and specialisations, you will be able to explore many career paths. Some of our recent graduates are currently employed as auditors, accountants and analysts in banks and major consulting firms, marketing co-ordinators and analysts in large multinational corporations and small boutique organisations, operations managers in a variety of companies, entrepreneurs running their own businesses and management trainees across a range of industries.

Once you’ve graduated Career opportunities depend on the subjects taken. Some of our recent graduates are currently employed as economists, accountants and financial analysts in banks and other large multinational companies, sustainability managers across a variety of organisations, marketing professionals in large and smaller firms, business analysts in numerous organisations and some are running their own company.

Which Bachelor of Business to choose? If you know what you’d like to focus on during your studies (and you want to be able to include a course name on your CV which reflects your area of study), that’s great – choose a course with a bracketed specialisation, such as Bachelor of Business (Marketing). If you are not sure, that’s OK too. Choose the Bachelor of Business and you’ll have the flexibility to make up your mind later on. You are not locked into a particular study program in this course. You will gain a solid foundation in all the main business disciplines in your first year. You can then choose your additional subjects based on your interests, strengths and desired career outcomes.

Learning to teach

Industry-based learning

We give aspiring educators the chance to learn from today’s leaders in education.

Their skilled guidance ensures you will be ready for a successful career or further study when you graduate.

We understand that educators need more than just great guidance. That’s why we give each of our students the chance to gain their own experience by completing professional teaching placements in Australia and overseas.

Choose your own path At Monash you have the choice to follow your own ambitions. You can specialise in early childhood, primary or secondary teaching, adult learning and development, or within the field of sport and outdoor recreation. Even more, you can choose to increase your career options by combining education studies with a range of double degrees in arts, arts and social sciences, business, commerce, music, science, sport and outdoor recreation or visual arts. With these choices you can make sure you graduate with the expertise that is right for you and have a greater flexibility in choosing to pursue a career as an educator or in a number of other employment areas associated with your second degree.

Francis Chen Bachelor of Sport and Outdoor Recreation After commencing his studies with a Diploma in IT at home in Singapore, Francis then decided to pursue his interest and passion for the outdoors. He relocated to Australia to study a Bachelor of Sport and Outdoor Recreation at Monash University. After graduating in 2004, he found himself gravitating towards outdoor experiential learning environments with adolescents and corporate programs. Recognising that sharing his passion for the outdoors with others was his chosen path, he decided to return to Monash to gain formal teaching qualifications. He completed a Graduate Diploma of Education (Secondary) in 2007 and is now teaching at the Alpine School Campus – School for Student Leadership. “I am very fortunate to have been given a chance to work at the Alpine School, nestled right in the beautiful Victorian Alps,” he says. “I am working in a school which encompasses my ideal educational setup – experiential and in the outdoors. It provides real-life learning and challenges, together with the most important ingredient of enjoyment, in an extended community”.

Disciplines available with the Bachelor of Engineering are Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering, Materials Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. The Bachelor of Engineering is also available with a variety of double degrees. See table below. Chemical engineering Many everyday things we take for granted, such as batteries, film, mobile phones, paper, petrol, polymers, clean power, food and beverages, all involve chemical engineering at some stage of their manufacture.

Civil engineering

Materials engineering

Civil engineers design, build, maintain, manage and operate infrastructure for the benefit of society. Modern societies could not function without civil engineering.

Materials engineers can control and change the properties or behaviour of materials to make new materials and improve existing ones. Materials engineers make a unique contribution to the design of a new device, product or component and make existing ones more functional, sustainable and cost effective.

Various types of infrastructure within the civil engineering discipline include highways and railways, buildings and structures, foundations, tunnels, airports, road systems and harbour facilities for transportation of goods and people, space stations, power generation facilities, water and wastewater treatment plants and distribution systems. Electrical and computer systems engineering Electrical and computer systems engineers investigate, plan, design, develop, construct, test, market and maintain a wide range of products and systems, from broadcasting and telecommunications to blood analysers and from power generation to robotics. This branch of engineering is extremely diverse, taking in electronics, computer systems, telecommunications, biomedical engineering, control, robotics and electrical energy engineering.

Their work covers everything from the thermal protection of a space shuttle, to high-tech artificial hip and cochlear implants, from investigating nano-particles that can seek and destroy cancer to advanced battery systems for green electric cars, artificial hearts and laptop computers. Mechanical engineering Mechanical engineering is about converting energy into motion and power. It covers the generation, conversion, transmission and use of  mechanical and thermal energy and includes the design, construction and operation of devices and systems. Mechanical engineers work on aircraft engines and cars, climate control systems, electrical generators, propulsion systems, renewable energy systems, robots, and power plants, to name a few.

Based in chemistry, physics and mathematics, chemical engineering involves the economic and safe design, operation and management of chemical and physical processes that convert, with minimal environmental impact, raw materials into useful and valuable products.

Tristan Teo (Second year Singaporean LLB student) “I chose Monash Law because of its reputation. It definitely has pedigree and is a trail blazer when it comes to legal education! It is also part of the Group of Eight and – most importantly as I’m a Singaporean – recognised by the Board of Legal Education for admission to legal practise in Singapore. I also love the Law Faculty’s diversity – students hail from a wide array of cultural backgrounds. Melbourne offers an excellent lifestyle too. As much as I wanted to study hard, I also wanted to have a good time. Melbourne has been ranked as the World’s Most Liveable City so at Monash I can have the best of both worlds.”
