The Social and Cultural Inquiry major is one of five in the Master of Arts course. The course teaches you critical and theoretical understandings of the ways that contemporary cultures are affected by, and react to, processes of global change. You have a choice to study one of two disciplines: cultural studies or social science.

You’ll explore new modes of communication and learn how cultural values are demonstrated through social and cultural practices. You will develop critical and theoretical understandings of urbanisation, industrialisation, technological change, inter-ethnic contacts and environmental transformation from different local, regional, national and transnational viewpoints. Participants are encouraged to apply and test these skills and understanding through applied practice in the form of an advanced discipline project and a professionally-orientated placement. 
In your first year you will undertake introductory units, develop your skills in your chosen discipline and prepare for your major project. In your second year you will complete your major project and have an opportunity for internship within a relevant industry upon meeting required conditions.
