About this course

The Graduate Diploma in English Studies is designed for research students from Australia and overseas, secondary school teachers and those interested in studying English literature at an advanced level.

Through the course you will bring together contemporary critical theory with literary narratives and investigate how and why literature still enjoys particular resonance in the 21st century. You will consider the ways in which the study of literature works in a specifically Australian cultural context. This course focuses on four core approaches: - critical reading - literary history - literary comparison (including the question of English as a world literature)
