Learn from award-winning scholars and authors

As a student in the Department of English, you'll benefit from expert teaching and small class sizes, providing individual learning experiences.

Our majors are supported by a cross-disciplinary approach, enabling students to broaden their skill set by combining both English and Creative Writing, as well as other academic areas – ranging from philosophy to international relations.

We foster valuable industry skills and experiences through internship programs, partnerships with major literary events like the Sydney Writers' Festival and the Emerging Writers' Festival, and hands-on team-based publishing of our own creative writing journal, The Quarry.

Studying English and creative writing equips you for a wide range of jobs, including:

  • publishing

  • creative industries
  • video game writing and development
  • education
  • marketing
  • public relations
  • technical writing
