Faculty updates
Faculty of Education High
Achievers Evening
The Faculty of Education recently
celebrated the achievements of 36
high-achieving VCE students who
achieved an ATAR of 90 and above,
and commenced an undergraduate
education course in Semester 1, 2014.
The students and their families
celebrated their achievements with
Professor John Loughran (Dean,
Faculty of Education) on Thursday,
1 May at the Faculty of Education
High Achievers Evening.
The evening also included two
guest speakers – fourth year
education student Julia Robertson,
and second year education student
Jimmy Rizos. Both Julia and Jimmy
are high achieving students, so it
was great for first year students to
hear such positive and inspiring
stories about their education studies
and school placement experiences.
Aidan Stewart attended the evening.
He received an ATAR above 90 in
2013 and is now studying the
Bachelor of Education (Special
Education) at Berwick. “I have a
passion for working with children
and providing additional care for those
who need it in their development
as students”, Aidan explained. Aidan
continued about his experiences in
the Faculty of Education. “I have
found the Faculty of Education to be
supportive during my transition into
university life and experienced in the
knowledge and skills being passed
onto myself and my peers”.
The Faculty of Education at Monash
is looking forward to welcoming
students in 2015 into the new
Bachelor of Education (Honours)
course. Information about the
course can be viewed at

Monash Science Stories
Monash Science is home to
teaching and research at the
forefront of its field – the work of
its people changes lives, shapes
our conversations and provides
new ways to view and understand
our world. Their work – exploring
the ways atoms behave,
understanding the inside of stars,
conserving waterways, cultivating
cures for disease, studying
behaviour – doesn’t just take
place in a lab or the class room.
Monash Science Stories is a
digital platform devoted to
portraying via words and video,
the rich tapestry of human stories
that form the heart of the Monash
University Science community.
If your students love discovery
and asking questions they may be
interested to find out more about
a science degree from Monash
could take them. New stories will
be added to this site throughout
the year.

Business and Economics
Bachelor of Business Administration
A degree in business administration gives students
the skills needed to operate effectively in business
and economics, or marketing. These majors have been
selected for their strong employment outcomes for graduates.
So whether students plan to manage their own projects,
run their own business, or work in a large corporation,
the Bachelor of Business Administration provides a solid
grounding in all aspects of business management
and strategy.
The Bachelor of Business Administration at Monash offers
the opportunity to gain a business qualification from a
world-class university, without the required Year 12 maths
prerequisites of other business courses.
Students in this program experience the same benefits
as other Monash business students, including internships,
overseas study options and access to excellent facilities
and teaching staff.
As part of the program, students are given the opportunity to
study an extended major in one of three key business areas,
giving them additional knowledge in their chosen field of
specialisation. Available majors include accounting, finance

Monash Art Design &
Concrete – showing at Monash University Museum of Art (MUMA)
Computer Games Boot Camp
(CGBC) 2014
Concrete: a solid state, a
construction material, something
which is known or true.
MUMA’s second exhibition for 2014,
Concrete brings together the work
of sixteen artists, both Australian
and international. The exhibition
explores the concrete, or the solid
and its counter: change, the flow
of time. As we prepare to mark the
centenary of the First World War,
the exhibition considers the impact
of time upon built and monumental
form, reading between materiality
and emotion, form and memory.
Monuments reflect a desire for
commemoration, truth, honour and
justice. Equally, they may function to
consolidate political power and
national identity. Works in the
exhibition locate the monumental
in relation to longer cycles of
construction, displacement and
erasure; archaeology, geology and
paleontology; the shifting politics
of memory and ways to describe
a history of place.
We look forward to welcoming you
and your students to MUMA.
Exhibition date: 3 May – 5 July
Location: Ground Floor, Building F,
Caulfield campus
For more information, visit
or call 03 9905 4217
MUMA is open: Tuesday – Friday
10am – 5pm; Saturday 12 – 5pm
This seven day event is for
students in years 9 to 12, and
gives them an opportunity to
experience everything connected
to computer games and
information technology.
Students learn from experienced
industry professionals, talk to
like-minded individuals and
can expand their networks by
participating in workshops,
tournaments, presentations
and activities.
If your students are interested in
multimedia, designing or playing
games, or looking towards a
career in IT, this event is for them!
Date: Saturday, 5 July – Friday, 11 July
