About

In the Literary and Cultural Studies major, you will focus on the construction of cultural values and the ways in which they are creatively and socially articulated.

You will explore a number of media, including novels, advertisements, newspapers, photographs, paintings, film, fashion, popular music, social space and social media, and how these encode and reflect the cultural conditions. By learning how to interpret encodings, you will gain new ways of understanding and making sense of our world in all its complexity.

This major suits students who are interested in popular cultural texts, socio-political issues and how society came to be the way it is today.

The Literary and Cultural Studies major is offered as part of the Bachelor of Arts. You can enhance your studies with a secondary major or choose from a range of elective units to support your career goals.
