Embedded in a strong humanities degree, the extended major in Western Civilisation provides you with the opportunity to immerse yourself 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. You will 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. Encounter influential ideas that have driven revolutions and study works that are engaging and challenging. Courses focus on small-group discussion to address important questions about human nature and the political order and aim to develop essential skills of critical reasoning and evaluation. For more information, visit Bachelor of Advanced Humanities (Hons) at UQ.
The course includes an industry internship, an orientation camp in the first semester of classes in first year, and a conference in final year. A Global Experience option is also available in the second year. Fifteen scholarships will be available for this program each year. Due to the staged introduction of courses, it may take longer than anticipated for students with credit to complete program requirements.
