Bachelor of Arts (BA)
The Bachelor of Arts provides students with opportunities to develop skills of critical and systematic thinking; an imaginative understanding and appreciation of the theory and practice of the social sciences, the humanities and the arts; enhanced cultural sensitivity and understanding through genuine reciprocity of values; skills and knowledge relevant to employment in the modern workforce; and familiarity with the use and importance of information technology in learning and employment.
The Bachelor of Arts degree is structured in a way which offers maximum flexibility and gives students opportunities to pursue their own interests and design their own courses of study. Students may study particular areas in depth or undertake a wide range of units. Up to one-third of the course may be taken outside the Faculty of Arts, thereby providing even greater possibilities for interesting course combinations.
