The School of Arts plays an important role in the academic life and campus culture of Murdoch University, delivering world-class research across a broad range of disciplines and contributing to a range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses. We teach undergraduate and postgraduate courses in creative arts and media, languages, humanities and social sciences. A number of these courses are taught in offshore mode through long-standing partnerships in Singapore and Dubai, and online through Open Universities Australia. Murdoch is particularly proud of its strong expertise in literary and cultural studies, creative writing, theatre and performance, philosophy and media studies.
The undergraduate English and Creative Writing major is based around an integrated program of study. Students engage with a cosmopolitan range of canonical and non-canonical fiction, drama and poetry from the Anglophone world, from the Renaissance to the present day, learning to hone their capacity for close reading, reflection, commentary and critique. Through creative and professional writing units they also develop the ability to write a diverse range of literary and other genres. Upon completion of the Major, our graduates are skilled in methods of critical analysis and argument, fluent in oral and written expression and confident in their ability to undertake critical and creative work.
