School of Languages and Cultures
Welcome to the School of Languages and Cultures, located in the Faculty of Arts. On our website you will find information about the departments and inter-disciplinary programs available within the School, along with a directory of academic staff and their research and all the latest School news.
We offer the widest range of language studies in Australia. This includes undergraduate, honours and postgraduate teaching in a range of languages and their social and cultural contexts. Language studies include Arabic, Aramaic, Chinese, French, German, Hebrew (Classical and Modern), Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Modern Greek, Pali, Sanskrit, Spanish and Syriac. Programs are also offered in Asian Studies, Biblical Studies, Buddhist Studies, European and Middle Eastern Studies, Jewish Studies and Islamic Studies.
Graduates with language skills and a good understanding of other cultures are in demand both in Australia and overseas. Our programs will provide you with an excellent competitive advantage for a range of government and private sector jobs, while the experience will expand your horizons and introduce you to people, places, cultures and ideas that can change your way of looking at the world around you.
