Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences revamped courses 2014

Following are the range of new postgraduate coursework programs:

The new Master of International Relations degree incorporates in its curriculum relevant global issues, including the Global Financial Crisis, climate change challenges, nuclear proliferation and the Arab Spring. As well as electives across Asian Studies, history, philosophy, law, economics, political economy and sociology, the program features in-built foreign language components to prepare graduates with advanced bilingual training.

The new Master of Art Curating program is the first of its kind in Australia, and will prepare students for careers including art curatorship and gallery professionals. With the option for two structured internship placements, as well as a focus on emerging non traditional art spaces, including artist-run galleries, pop-up galleries, public art projects and festivals, graduates of this program will gain a unique competitive edge working in various artistic environments.

The relaunched Master of Museum and Heritage Studies program will enable students to harness the University of Sydney’s strong ties with prestigious institutions, including the Art Gallery of NSW, the Australian Museum, the National Maritime Museum, the Historic Houses Trust and the Powerhouse Museum.

The Master of Economic Analysis course offers economic research and analysis leading to career as a professional economist, or to doctoral studies at leading research universities around the world.

This competitive program includes a research proposal and a versatile skillset fostered through such electives as International Money and Finance, Private Equity, Experimental Economics and Environmental Economics. This new program compliments the existing popular Master of Economics, which is a more technical and theoretical approach to applied economics.

In the new Master of English Studies program, students will examine a wide range of texts with a renewed focus on the relevance of literature in both a regional and global context. A feature of the new program is the inclusion of electives previously only available under the Master of Creative Writing, giving students the option to undertake subjects on contemporary poetry, fiction and screenwriting.

The above courses are designed to comply with the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF), are between 18 and 24 months, and are aimed to equip graduates with skills employers are looking for.
