The Faculty of Arts is home to humanities and social science at Monash, where you will find projects and publications at the cutting edge of international research. We produce exciting, engaged and excellent research.

What forces shape our lives? What makes for rich and meaningful existence? How can we change things for the better? Researchers in the Faculty of Arts seek to answer these questions.

We explore people, practices and cultures across time and place. We understand what is happening to us and to our society. We engage with communities, organisations and industry to deliver solutions tailored for cultural, social and professional contexts.
