Overview

Bachelor of Arts (Creative Writing and Literature)

The Creative Writing and Literature major allows you to delve into a variety of creative forms and texts. 

You will study historical and contemporary fiction, non-fiction, poetry, autobiographies, essays, films and plays. 

As you begin to create your own great classics, you will also learn how different written and multimedia texts have impacted cultures around the world.

Under the guidance of highly experienced academics:

  • develop analytical skills
  • develop creative writing skills
  • explore how different written and multimedia texts have impacted the cultures of the world.

You will focus on:

  • demonstrating a comprehensive understanding of the contexts and cultural influences of a wide range of literature and the theory and practice of creative writing.
  • being equipped to work independently and collaboratively to construct effective arguments and produce creative and critical texts across a wide range of genres and written media.
  • having a defined set of writing, editing and relevant analytical skills that can be used in a broad range of professional contexts.

This degree allows you to select two majors, ensuring you graduate with an in-depth knowledge of areas of interest to you. 

You can choose your second major from:

  • Aboriginal Studies
  • Applied Linguistics
  • Cultural Studies
  • English Language
  • History and Global Politics
  • Languages (French/Italian/Japanese)
  • Law, Politics and Policy
  • Performing Arts
  • Psychology
  • Screen Studies
  • Social Media
  • Sociology

You will also complete two core courses, four courses from a selected list of minors, and two electives.

This degree increases your employment prospects by enabling you to gain expertise in two different areas of interest.

You'll have the opportunity to study a portion of your degree overseas, as part of the University’s Hawke Ambassador International Volunteer Experience Program (full semester) or Hawke Professional Experience Program (part semester). 

In this program you will volunteer with an international non-government organisation (NGO), usually in an overseas destination.

You will also graduate with advanced writing, presentation, digital, communication, research and problem-solving skills that can be transferable across a range of roles and are highly regarded by prospective employers.

If you finish your degree with a credit or higher Grade Point Average (GPA), you could also be eligible for the one-year Bachelor of Arts (Honours) degree.

 You could also continue your studies with a Master of Teaching and teach English in Australia and overseas. If this interests you, please read How Do I Become a Teacher before selecting your courses.
