The stopper started his career with Torquay United before joining The Saints in 1996 but has failed to establish himself at St Mary's.
The 24-year-old has made just 13 appearances for the South Coast club and will make the trip to Yorkshire in the hope of gaining more first-team experience.
Monk has previously had loan spells with Stockport County, Oxford United and Sheffield Wednesday and will travel with The Tykes to prepare for the match against Bristol City at Ashton Gate on Saturday.
In other news, Barnsley have also extended the stay of Australian midfielder Jacob Burns for a further month.
