Description

The writing major provides a sequence of units which enables students to gain an understanding of a range of writing practices in the context of media and communication studies, contemporary cultural theory, and analyses of literary and other media forms. Units in writing enable students to become familiar with different kinds of contemporary writing, especially prose forms, and to acquire detailed knowledge of a range of techniques associated with contemporary cultural production. Upper-level units provide students with the opportunity to reflect critically on their own writing practices while developing and applying skills and techniques though individual and collaborative projects. The emphasis through the major is on exploring the many forms and possibilities of writing by contextualising writing practice through reflection on a range of textual histories and cultural theories.
