ARTS 7000: Academic Communication for Postgraduates
If you’ve been out of academia for a while, or if you’re a student from overseas unfamiliar with academic expectations of an Australian university, you may find it helpful to revise – or develop - your writing and research skills. If so, then this elective Unit of Study might be for you. As one local mature-age student phrased it: ‘This course has been extremely helpful in smoothing the transition into my Masters…Having been away from such disciplines for quite awhile, the objectives and lessons taken from this course have been extremely helpful’.
ARTS7000 focuses on scholarly skills rather than content. That is, on critical thinking, writing in a range of academic genres, argumentation styles, effective spoken communication, referencing etc. The abilities refined in this program are transportable to any of the other programs of study in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences.
If you’d like help working out whether or not you require this support unit, you might consider doing the free diagnostic, which is a tool to help us assess your scholarly needs. It is geared more towards International students, but of course native English speakers are also welcome to use it.
If you would like to revise your unit of study choices to include this unit, please revisit step one.
