Gender studies offers a unique opportunity from which to study a variety of topics and issues relating to gender and society. The program places particular emphasis on recent developments in Australian and Asia-Pacific gender relations and feminisms. Subjects within gender studies draw on examples from Australia and the Asia-Pacific region in order to develop students appreciation of Australia's location within the Asia-Pacific region and the implications of Australia's own colonial history. Situated within the School of Historical Studies, the interdisciplinary program in gender studies both draws on and extends the School's research interests.
Gender studies addresses a range of issues that include gender, family and mothering; gender and sexuality; gender and colonialism; gender and identity; gender and nationalism; and Australian, Asian, and global feminisms. The program draws on a core of subjects taught by lecturers in gender studies and a wide range of subjects available within other disciplines. These include subjects drawn from anthropology, art history, Australian studies, cinema studies, criminology, English, French, history, history and philosophy of science, Islamic studies, linguistics and applied linguistics, philosophy, political science, social theory and sociology.

|Core Participation Requirements:||The Diploma in Arts requires a standard level of ability across all disciplines. It will be assumed students are able to access and attend classes on a regular basis, are capable of learning in a University environment and will be able to take responsibility for their own learning. Any ability beyond this threshold will be robustly supported through the curriculum. There are no pre-requisites for first year subjects, and any intensive use of IT or technologies will be adequately supported. Certain subjects have more specific requirements and demands, such as fieldwork or travelling, which are clearly outlined in the Handbook's subject description. |
However, the University is dedicated to provide support to those with special requirements. The Faculty Disability Contact Officer works with students, the University Disability Liaison Unit and teaching staff to assist students with their special requirements, with a particular focus on accommodations for in-class and examination assessment tasks. Further details on the disability support scheme can be found at http://www.services.unimelb.edu.au/disability.
|Further Study:||Arts offers many opportunities for further study. A postgraduate diploma, leading on to a masters degree or PhD, can add vocational and/or research skills to your undergraduate arts degree and increase your employment options. Arts graduates also use postgraduate study to explore in greater depth and detail subjects they found interesting during their undergraduate study or to study a completely new field of knowledge.|
