Aimed at high-achievers, this course exposes students to contemporary thinking in the humanities and prepares them for a range of careers in leading academic and professional organisations. Students engage with leading humanities researchers from their first year of study and participate in the University’s research culture, applying and developing their analytical skills and employability through practice-led learning and community-building tasks. Embedded in this degree, the extended major in Western Civilisation immerses students in a creative and diverse curriculum with a strong critical focus on the key intellectual movements which have shaped Western Civilisation from antiquity to the current day. Students read, study and critique major works of literature, art, music, politics, law, and religion, and develop an understanding of the dynamic interplay of social, historical and aesthetic forces that have contributed to evolving conceptions of the West For more information, visit Bachelor of Advanced Humanities (Hons) at UQ.
The course includes an industry or community mini-internship, an orientation camp in the first semester of in first year, and a student-organised conference in the year of study. A Global Experience option is also available in the second year.
