About this course

This dual degree program allows students to combine studies in law with a wide range of majors in the arts. The Bachelor of Laws (Honours) (LLB(Hons)) degree is like a passport to exceptional success in the employment market: as a barrister or solicitor in private practice, as a prosecutor of crime, as a community lawyer, as a legal officer in the public service, as in-house counsel for a large corporation, or, when combined with another degree in any one of a wide range of positions in areas such as foreign affairs, industrial relations, management, or politics. Students will gain a thorough understanding of the concepts, principles, policies and values of the law both in Australia and other jurisdictions. It will also see students develop outstanding skills in critical analysis, thought and argument, skills which will be valuable in whatever career students eventually choose.BA studies will provide students with highly developed skills in written communication, problem-solving, critical thinking and interpersonal understanding.

The English literature major introduces students to one of the world's key literary traditions as well as to contemporary global English-language literary culture. Undertaking the formal study of English literature from its beginnings to the present day is to be introduced to a vast intellectual and cultural history--one that records the almost infinitely different ways in which men and women, from a great variety of different times and places, have lived, thought, argued, felt and imagined. Many of the novels, poems, plays and non-fictional works students encounter in this program rank amongst the greatest products of the human mind. The major also introduces students to some influential ways of thinking about literature.
