What will I learn?

The Master of Philosophy (MPhil) degree is undertaken as a supervised program of original research.

It is suited to those with some research training and experience, but who do not meet the eligibility criteria for direct entry into the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD).

The Institute's engaged research is committed to making a positive difference in the world. It is engaged ethically and reciprocally with others. Our aim is to carry out innovative interdisciplinary research into continuities and transformations in culture and society in a way that contributes to understanding and shaping contemporary local and global life. This approach involves being reflexively engaged both with the world and in understanding the conditions and limits of its own knowledge practices.

Your career

As a Master of Philosophy graduate, you will develop skills in critical thinking and presenting an organised and well-supported argument. These skills are important in a wide range of career paths such as:

  • Market and consumer research
  • Policy analysis, research and development
  • Technology research and development
  • Public relations and communications
  • University teaching or administration
