Australian studies aims to investigate and analyse Australian society, culture and politics in order to support greater understanding of Australia both locally and internationally. Australian studies is a dynamic, interdisciplinary subject area which provides insight into the modern world by applying historical perspectives to contemporary issues.
The National Centre for Australian Studies (NCAS) plays a key role in the development of teaching and research in Australian studies both nationally and internationally. NCAS offers innovative undergraduate courses and postgraduate programs taught by staff actively engaged in research projects, public programs and international collaboration. The research interests of staff range from politics and trade union history to youth and Indigenous tourism; from publishing to media studies; from the history of advertising to diasporic Asian identities and culture. Master's and doctoral supervision is available from staff publishing in these and other areas.
NCAS also offers internationally recognised vocationally-oriented tuition in communications and media studies, tourism, and publishing and editing. NCAS staff have expertise in applying interactive, multimedia technologies to teaching and have produced a range of multimedia resources in Australian studies. Teaching and research supervision at NCAS is informed by a commitment to the internationalisation of Australian studies.
NCAS welcomes the interest of international students and visitors in its programs.
