Regulatory studies is offered by Faculty of Law in conjunction with the faculties of Arts, Business and Economics, Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences and the Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at Monash University. It is specifically designed to address the nature, extent and implications of the regulatory environment in a broad, cross-disciplinary approach. The study of regulation is a relatively new discipline which links and transcends the boundaries between economics, law, politics, criminology, sociology, psychology, organisational theory and public administration. This unique specialisation will provide practitioners and scholars with a core set of ideas, theories and skills to apply to their regulatory activities and manage regulatory challenges.
