Courses Overview

What will I learn?
The Graduate Diploma of Arts Research Studies is an 80 credit point program designed to provide graduates in the Humanities, Languages and Social Science discipline with the opportunity to undertake advanced study in research methodology and to undertake supervised research work in the discipline area appropriate to their research trajectory.
The program provides the necessary preparation for entry into a higher degree research program (Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), Master of Philosophy (MPhil), or equivalent program) for applicants who do not possess the required qualifications for direct admission into these programs. The program will also be available to students who wish to undertake advanced studies in the identified disciplinary fields, but who may not wish to progress to MPhil or PhD study.
Upon successful completion of the program, students will be eligible to apply for admission to MPhil or PhD candidature, subject to fulfilment of the requirements for candidature as specified in the Higher Degree Research Policy and successful completion of the confirmation procedure. The grade achieved will determine eligibility for admission to either a PhD or MPhil candidature.
The Program Director will be responsible for the overall supervision of students in the program and for monitoring their progress throughout the program.
Students may choose to exit the Graduate Diploma program (after successfully completing the specified courses) with the Graduate Certificate in Arts Research Studies.
My career opportunities
The research capabilities developed through the program will be appropriate for students seeking employment in research fields.
