As a Bachelor of Arts student, you will develop skills in understanding the world and its peoples, society and culture. Arts students develop key skills in interpersonal communication; creativity, research and problem solving. Subject diversity makes this course attractive to students seeking a liberal arts education with flexibility to study the areas you enjoy while building skills as a foundation for employment or further specialised study. You can choose to undertake two majors, or a major and two minors plus a range of electives, tailoring the degree to suit your goals. Minors are available in each of the majors, and in the disciplines of communication, creative writing, and geography.
