University of Tasmania (UTAS)

Course details

CRICOS course code: 001694A

Level of study: Undergraduate

Summary

The Bachelor of Arts is the ultimate, flexible university degree. With over twenty named majors, you can select subjects to build your knowledge, and electives to enhance your skills.

Our students are curious about the big questions of life, embrace the joy of open enquiry, and are on a life-long quest for knowledge and inspiration. At the University of Tasmania, you will be part of an academic community that cares deeply about the topics that we teach and study.

You will learn to influence cultural and social change, and you will gain the knowledge and creativity to envision better futures. You’ll take on the world’s cultural, environmental, and humanitarian challenges from multiple perspectives and gain the confidence to make a positive difference. In your first year, you will have the opportunity to visit Country with an Aboriginal Elder or knowledge holder as part of our curriculum’s reflection of the value and place of Indigenous knowledges and perspectives.

We also offer opportunities to study across different disciplines and add a major from another course offering. The Bachelor of Arts combines with a wide range of courses which allow you to deepen your knowledge and expertise within two separate study areas. It's also your chance to pursue a career and follow your passion at the same time.

English and Writing

When you study language and culture through the best and most compelling books and stories of the ages you will learn to read the world around you actively and critically. You will come to understand how texts work as well as the key elements of poetry, narrative, theatre and filmmaking. Reading texts from the medieval period to the present, from fiction and poetry to theatre, film, television and the Internet, you will discover how to analyse texts and genres in their cultural, historical and contemporary contexts. Through reading, viewing and writing you will discover how to reflect, imagine and create while learning to develop your own voice as a writer. Through mastering different styles you will establish an understanding of how to write in different disciplines and for different purposes.

A major in English and Writing prepares students for any field in which careful reading, clear thinking, and persuasive writing are valued. Our emphases on textual analysis and writing skills make English a traditionally strong undergraduate major for any professions requiring advanced communication skills
