Notes

  • Unit codes that are not linked to their entry in the Handbook are not available for study in the current year.
  • Students have a maximum of eight years to complete this course.
  • Part-time study not available to students at Monash South Africa. This course has a compulsory overseas study/exchange component - it is the student's responsibility to take this requirement into account when making decisions about their unit choices and study abroad experience. Students may select arts units from any campus, but should be aware of the teaching location as this may require travel to another campus. Students may also select units offered in off-campus mode (except at Monash South Africa).

Description

This course builds on the broad teaching and learning objectives of the Bachelor of Arts while developing a specialised focus on studies within an international framework. Students are able to explore and develop their knowledge and studies of the humanities through completing a compulsory international studies major sequence and undertaking studies on off-shore campuses as well as via flexible delivery mode. Students can undertake studies in related areas, including the various language programs offered by the Faculty of Arts.

Outcomes

These course outcomes are aligned with the Australian Qualifications Framework level 7, the Bologna Cycle 1 and Monash Graduate Attributes. For more information refer to http://opvclt.monash.edu.au/curriculum-by-design/aligning-course-outcomes-with-aqf-bologna.html.

Upon successful completion of this course it is expected that graduates will be able to:

  • analyse, consolidate and synthesise knowledge from a range of sources
  • apply critical understanding and analysis to the literature within the humanities, arts and social sciences
  • demonstrate an understanding of the present interpretations and potential future developments in the issues underlying the content of and approaches to the disciplines they have studied
  • apply critical understanding of personal and cultural understandings, ethical attitudes, and (where appropriate) the physical and aesthetic appreciations that underpin traditional liberal arts education
  • demonstrate advanced skills of written and oral presentation, argument and analysis
  • demonstrate the capacity to apply these studies in the changing circumstances of intellectual life and of the profession they are likely to inhabit
  • apply a critical awareness of international trends and of the intellectual context of economic, technological and social change
