International English engages students in a systematic and structured study of the English language and its variations across time and contexts. Students learn to recognise and work with the uses and features of the language that are essential to a wide range of social, academic and professional contexts. The major provides a solid and comprehensive foundation for students who aim to work professionally with English in different contexts and countries, especially those intending to pursue post-graduate qualifications in education. The major focuses on varieties and structures of English, informed by studies of English in specific discourse settings, and specifically aims to ensure that students understand the language and its use very well and that they possess a highly developed capacity to use English well across a range of contexts.
