Contains units designed to emphasise the importance of content knowledge in English and cover a wide range of text areas, from traditional literature to computer games.
The specialisation content is closely aligned to the Australian Curriculum and to WACE syllabus and examination requirements. The units cover school curricula, teaching strategies and the development and assessment of teaching programmes. Students should note that this is not a specialisation in English language instruction, it is a preparation to teach English Literature and English textual studies.
Special entry requirements
All applicants are required to complete a major in English or an equivalent language arts degree (three years of degree level study comprising at least 6 units with no more than two at first-year level and no fewer than two units at third-year level) with at least 3 units of a strong core of textual studies including literature. Alternatively applicants can complete at least two years (4 units) of degree level study in English with at least two units at level 2 or above in the previously mentioned areas, if they intend to undertake this specialisation as their minor area of study.
