Course Overview

The aim of the Bachelor of Arts is to provide students with a multidisciplinary education that will allow them the opportunity to gain knowledge in a range of humanities and social science disciplines. Students will experience a variety of perspectives, methodologies and learning styles. They will explore disciplines that study the way humans recognise, record and debate human practices, meanings and values. This will aid them in developing contemporary understandings both of the human condition and of how society operates.

 

The Bachelor of Arts is structured so that students have the opportunity to explore traditional Arts disciplines such as geography, history and literature, as well engaging with a professional major. The combination of arts and professional majors will enable students to think deeply in the arenas of humanities and social sciences as well as enabling them to take steps to prepare themselves for the world of work.

 

Students will have the opportunity to gain crucial lifelong learning and transferable generic skills, such as critical thinking and problem solving. They will be able to apply these skills to a range of employment opportunities and life situations.The Bachelor of Arts will also enable students to gain entry into a variety of postgraduate and vocationally oriented programs.

The life-long skills include: creative thinking, critical reading, critical thinking, effective writing and communication skills, developing clear and cogent arguments, research, data analysis, understanding intercultural relationships, social justice, cultural heritage and environmental planning. These generic skill sets from the BA are regarded highly by Graduate Recruitment Companies who recruit university graduates for government departments and various large companies, and by Employers in general. There are a wide variety of job types that BA graduates move into.

Geography and Environmental Studies Major

Number of units: 8 Total credit points: 48

The Geography major offers a diverse set of courses that range from a more traditional liberal studies focus to courses that concentrate on developing industry-specific knowledge and skills. Geography is a broadly based, integrative discipline where courses may have humanities, social science or natural science foci, or some combination of these approaches. This major includes Environmental Geography courses because the Geography discipline also deals with environmental issues that are more contemporary in nature and are aimed at improving our ability to manage the environment more effectively. Geography students will develop a unique set of knowledge and skills that are not only useful in a wide range of careers, but can play important roles in helping students to make sense of the world around them, including current events and future trends.

 

Students wishing to complete a Geography major are required to complete eight courses (two of the three level 1 courses plus six advanced level courses) from those listed below. Students studying to be Geography teachers as part of an education degree will choose courses as per the advice given as part of the structure of those programs.

History is both a body of knowledge and a method of inquiry, a way of understanding ourselves and the world around us. It strives to comprehend complex processes of continuity and change and provides insights into how the past influences the present and the future. Historians draw on the largest storehouse of information that exists about how human beings actually behave: the past. Doing History, students learn to identify, evaluate and interpret evidence, make informed judgements about its significance, debate their findings and clearly and cogently communicate their informed opinions, all while studying a subject they enjoy!

Literary & Cultural Studies Major

Number of units: 8 Total credit points: 48

The Literary & Cultural Studies major brings together two distinct but complementary disciplinary approaches: literary studies where literature is read for its own sake and for the values it reveals in stories, poems and plays about our lived and imaginary experiences; and cultural studies where ideas and concepts derived from a broad study of culture are explored through a variety of texts including film, media, television, advertising and the like. Both disciplines examine the assumptions used to support the way that meaning is made across a range of texts and in a variety of contexts.

 

Literary Studies students will be able to demonstrate advanced reading and writing skills; to apply critical thinking and advanced modes of textual analysis to a broad range of texts, genres and media; to communicate using cogent, discipline-based and context-relevant research; and to participate, both self-reflexively and ethically, in discipline critical debates.
