Integrated Design

www.studyat.uwa.edu.au/integrated-design

Requirements

Prerequisites: None

Academic and English language requirements: See pages 202 – 203

Integrated Design involves the creation of objects, places and spaces in response to economic, technical and social needs and desires. It is a speculative discipline—meaning the use of your imagination is central to the way you use different technologies and methods when creating drawings, models and prototypes. As part of the creative process you will undertake collaborative work on multi-disciplinary projects with a variety of individuals. Your practical studies will be supported by investigations into design communication and sustainable design, as well as considerations of relevant historical and ethical issues relating to design. If you wish to pursue a career in Architecture, the Integrated Design major must be studied in conjunction with the Architecture major (see page 50).



In the future

Completion of the Integrated Design major can lead to opportunities in urban design, industrial design, product design, computer modelling, theatre set design, building design, and architectural drafting.

Students can choose to proceed to the Master of Urban Design. Students who have also completed the Architecture major may progress to the professionally accredited Master of Architecture. The completion of this major may also be used as a pathway to studies in Landscape Architecture.

In the future

European language graduates are well qualified for careers in the diplomatic services, teaching and training, interpreting and translating, as well as a range of careers in travel, hospitality, publishing, theatre, commerce, manufacturing, law and international relations. Knowledge of a foreign language is particularly helpful for career prospects in international banking, journalism and communications, medical areas, music and the arts.

Japanese

Requirements

Prerequisites: None

Academic and English language requirements: See pages 202 – 203

Studying Japanese language, culture and society means taking a significant step towards becoming Asia-literate—an important attribute for future global citizens. Knowledge of the Japanese language offers you a passport to Asia’s popular and business cultures. This major caters for beginners and for students who have studied Japanese to high school level or equivalent. UWA has a traditional Japanese tatami room which is used for functions. Joining the Japanese Students’ Association will provide you with excellent opportunities for language practice, cultural exchange, socialising and networking.



In the future

There is high demand for graduates with knowledge of Japan and Japanese. Graduates with a major in Japanese can find employment in federal and state government departments and a wide range of organisations in private industry as well as community organisations. The combination of Japanese with a major in another discipline (e.g. anthropology, economics, geography, history, industrial relations and politics) is becoming particularly attractive to employers.

Students can choose to pursue further studies at honours level or other postgraduate options including degrees leading to professional qualifications listed on pages 179 – 198.

Korean

Requirements

Prerequisites: None

Academic and English language requirements: See pages 202 – 203

The Korean Studies major develops communicative competence in both written and spoken Korean. The unique Korean script – Hangul – is a phonetic alphabetical system that is one of the world’s most scientific writing systems, and can be learned quickly. As a student with a Korean studies major you will develop your understanding of Korean culture, society and people.

Korea is an increasingly important area of study as a result of the rapid economic development of the Republic of Korea (South Korea), and its position as the third biggest trading partner for Western Australia. Study of the Korean Studies major equips students with not only linguistic, but also cultural competence and intercultural understanding. Such understanding is required of a successful graduate in the contemporary world where Asia plays an increasingly important part, not only as an economic but also cultural power. The course structure includes both language studies and cultural study units which will both challenge students to think about internationalisation at a deeper and personal level, necessitating a readjustment of their own existing assumptions of normative forms of knowledge, but also to pursue topics that they find personally interesting, from popular culture to politics and history.

The Korean Studies major is taught only to beginners and applicants with prior knowledge of, or a qualification in Korean can only be considered on case-by-case basis.



In the future

Graduates with a major in Korean Studies from UWA will be competent Korean language users with a critical understanding of a culture other than their own. Korean Studies graduates with good language skills will be highly employable within the current economic climate, particularly when the Korean major is combined with a second major in another discipline.

Students can choose to pursue further studies at honours level or other postgraduate options including degrees leading to professional qualifications listed on pages 179 – 198.

Law and Society

www.studyat.uwa.edu.au/law-society

Requirements

Prerequisites: None

Academic and English language requirements: See pages 202 – 203

What impact does law have on our lives? To what extent does law either control what we do or allow us to achieve what we want? Is law the same as justice? Can the world be saved by law? This major, offered by the Faculty of Law, examines broad theoretical issues about the nature of law and society as well as how the relationship plays out in particular fields of domestic and international law and social policy levels. The fields you may study include human rights, decisions about birth and death, crime and justice, Indigenous rights, freedom of expression and religion. Studying Law and Society will help you develop important skills in research, analysis, teamwork and communication.



In the future

In combination with other study, graduates will be qualified for roles in the government, not-for-profit or commercial sectors. These include law-related policy and research roles in law reform and justice agencies; and positions that draw on knowledge of law, such as human resources, industrial relations, human rights, equal opportunity and legal assistance.

Students can choose to pursue further studies at honours or postgraduate level. While this major is not a requirement for entry to the postgraduate Juris Doctor (JD), students intending to progress to this professional postgraduate degree may benefit from studying law at undergraduate level.

Linguistics

www.studyat.uwa.edu.au/linguistics
Requirements

Prerequisites: None

Academic and English language requirements: See pages 202 – 203

Linguistics is the study of the nature of human language and communication. Linguists study how languages are structured, learned and used in different cultures and societies, as well as how they change through time. Linguistics is concerned with what all languages have in common as well as how individual languages differ from one another. This major includes both fascinating theoretical research and practical field-orientated projects. As a student you will have the opportunity to learn about a diverse range of the world’s languages, from the familiar such as Australian English and European and Asian languages, through to the less well-known minority languages from Australia and around the world. You do not need to know a second language or be ‘good at languages’ to excel in Linguistics. Many excellent linguists speak only one language—all you need is a healthy curiosity.



In the future

A major in Linguistics provides a foundation for any career that involves language or languages, human social organisation and culture, or the human mind. In addition to research careers, graduates go on to careers in language teaching, speech therapy, journalism, broadcasting, translation, interpreting, Indigenous education and support work and information technology.

Students can choose to pursue further studies at honours level or other postgraduate options including degrees leading to professional qualifications listed on pages 179 – 198.
