Bachelor of Arts (Honours) - Language and Communication

Language and Communication

This Major provides an academic pathway for students who seek to develop the advanced language and communication skills that are required for meeting future challenges in the workplace.

Designed to accomplish this overall aim through a balanced selection of topics from the rich areas of linguistics, literature, communication, and media / cultural studies, this Major enables students to build a clear and integrative understanding of the central role of language and communication activities in contemporary cultural life, and to make informed choices for further study, either in more specialised areas in the humanities and the social sciences, or in a professional area of specialisation that requires a solid foundation in language and communication studies.
