                   A Message from the Dean
                   Welcome to postgraduate study in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at the University of New South Wales.
                   Whether you are intending to undertake postgraduate research work, are seeking professional qualifications
                   or are pursuing a specially cherished interest through a coursework program, I hope and expect that you will
                   find your postgraduate study in the Faculty a stimulating and exciting experience.
                   The Faculty prides itself on the quality of the research supervision it provides for its PhD and Masters by
                   Research students and aims to ensure that students have access to the facilities they require to achieve to the
                   best of their abilities and to interact with fellow research students in seminars and workshops. A state-of-the-
                   art Research Laboratory provides study spaces with networked computers, printers and private note storage
                   areas for in-coming Research postgraduates. Individual Schools also offer accommodation and computing
                   facilities. Funds are also available to support research costs and conference attendance. The Faculty offers
                   around thirty different programs in its PhD and Masters by Research programs, covering all of the disciplines
                   of the Faculty and some interdisciplinary programs.
                   Postgraduate coursework opportunities range from Graduate Certificate through Graduate Diploma to Masters
                   degrees and from interest driven programs in the MA to such specialist fields as Applied Linguistics, International
                   Relations and Media, Performance and Education. Professionally oriented programs are offered in such fields
                   as the Master of Educational Administration and the Master of Professional Ethics.
                   I wish you an enjoyable and fruitful period of postgraduate study in the Faculty.
