Summary

The Bachelor of Arts course is a flexible program designed to produce knowledgeable, articulate and innovative graduates. Students choose their preferred subjects. An awareness and appreciation of diverse societies, cultures, values and cultural sensitivities are important elements. Graduates are valued because of their capacity to think systematically and critically, to gather and evaluate evidence from many sources and to communicate clearly.

Through the study of a broad range of literary texts and approaches to reading them, the Literature major familiarises students with literary traditions and contemporary literary cultures. This major will reveal the varied ways in which people have lived, thought, felt and imagined, opening up new worlds of understanding. Students will develop vital transferrable skills in effective reading, writing, analysis and interpretation that will equip them for rewarding careers in teaching, journalism, the media, and other professions that require articulate and culturally literate graduates.
