Within the Faculty of Arts is the Melbourne Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences, which offers exciting opportunities for intellectual engagement and collegiality. Academic and professional staff foster and support cohort-building and networking between students.
The School of Languages and Linguistics was created in 1993 as the vehicle for providing excellence in language teaching and learning, and for ensuring wider access, across the University community, to high level competency in languages and cultures. Its organisational structure, in close association with the Asia Institute, and its outreach to the rest of the university through the Diploma in Languages are widely seen as models of best practice in the Australian system.
Drawing on the expertise of Linguistics and Applied Linguistics as well as the Language Testing Research Centre (LTRC) and the Research Unit for Multilingualism and Cross Cultural Communication (RUMACCC), the School promotes maximal synergies in language teaching, learning and assessment strategies and provides a key nexus for reflection and research in all areas of linguistics, and in the interface of language and culture.
Additionally, the School of Audiology at Melbourne is part of the Department of Otolaryngology in the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences of the University of Melbourne. The School runs several postgraduate courses in audiology.
The Department specializes in research to improve hearing and communication for children and adults who suffer from hearing loss. The Australian Bionic Ear (Cochlear Implant) was developed as a result of this research and now provides hearing to more than 50,000 completely or profoundly deaf people in 55 countries. The multidisciplinary research group is based in East Melbourne, where several research teams pursue various aspects of hearing science.University of Melbourne Graduate Linguistics and Languages Degrees
