The Difference and Diversity specialisation has been designed to incorporate specialised study with the core program in the Master of Social Science. On completion students will have in-depth grounding in theory and research in the social sciences and specialised knowledge and skills in the study of Difference and Diversity. In the specialisation students will engage with contemporary questions and debates of power and inequality centering on difference and diversity in first world and majority world contexts. Social relations of difference situated around structures of race, ethnicity, religion, disability, gender, sexuality and class will be analysed in terms of their intersecting relations and effects. Graduates will be well positioned to take-up high level positions in global and national institutions, and Non-Government Organisations (NGOs) as policy analysts, practitioners and researchers.
