There are a range of graduate employers in the government sector who recruit from the Arts disciplines. These include the Department of Defence, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, security agencies, the Victorian Government and many more. These positions are highly sought after and a postgraduate qualification would maximise employment potential. Closing dates for these programs is often the year before the date of commencement, which means students need to be prepared!

For example, government departments and security agencies, local council, not-for-profit and community organisations, corporate and multinational organisations.
