[The following is relevant for students who are classified as an Australian domestic student i.e. Australian citizens, New Zealand citizens, Australian Permanent Resident and holders of humanitarian visas]

The Social Science of the Internet specialisation (http://adsri.anu.edu.au/graduate-study/ssi) in the Australian National University's Master of Social Research (http://adsri.anu.edu.au/graduate-study/msr) was established in 2009, and provides students with the relevant theory and methods for empirical social science internet research.

A big part of the curriculum is social network analysis (as applied to data from the Internet).

The Master of Social Research (which also offers specialisation in demography and social research methods) will have a limited number of Commonwealth Supported Places beginning in 2014 . A Commonwealth Supported Place (CSP) can save students more than 50 per cent on the cost of full-fee graduate study. With a CSP, you will instead pay the equivalent of undergraduate fees for your graduate coursework program.

If you are an eligible Australian domestic student and would like to apply for a CSP for 2014, please see the following page for more details: http://cass.anu.edu.au/node/4716

Note: applications close 12 January, and you need to have applied for the MSR before applying for the CSP!
