The Religion and Society 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 field of Religion and Society. This specialisation has been developed in response to the current global renaissance of religion and spirituality. From a sociological perspective there is a need for professionals and experts who can respond to these developments from a non-theological perspective for the benefit of social harmony in Australia and the region. Graduating students will demonstrate high level mastery in theory and practice in the social sciences with specialised knowledge and skills in Religion and Society. Students completing the specialisation in Religion and Society will be well positioned to take-up high level policy and research positions in the public and private spheres. Graduates also will be well qualified to work as policy analysts and researchers within the social sciences in general.
