About and contact

Monash’s Faculty of Arts produces world class scholarship on societal challenges of global scale including poverty and international development, violence and security, health and behaviour change, and intercultural communication.

In the Faculty of Arts we are committed to understanding and improving the human condition through our research across the Humanities and Social Sciences.

While research continues to make major breakthroughs in finding technological solutions to global challenges (such as environmental change, sustainable development and disease), maximising the take-up and impact of these technologies depends on knowledge of how people respond and communicate within and across diverse communities.

Researchers in the Faculty of Arts think critically and creatively to address disciplinary and interdisciplinary problems. They create, translate and enable knowledge and innovation. They engage in public debates and communicate with citizens in local, regional and global settings. Monash Arts research is globally engaged and internationally recognised for its scholarly excellence and impact.
