Objectives

The Bachelor of Arts offers the opportunity for a liberal education. Students are able to exercise choice across a wide range of disciplines. These include the humanities (Ancient Civilisations, Ancient Greek, Latin, English, History, Asian Languages, European Languages and Philosophy) and the social sciences (Geography, International Relations, Political Science, Psychology, Public Policy and Sociology) as well as interdisciplinary studies (Aboriginal Studies, Asian Studies, Comparative and Asian Philosophy, Criminology, European Studies, Natural Environment and Wilderness Studies, Screen Studies, Social Ecology, Gender Studies and Journalism, Media & Communications).

The program develops general abilities in the following areas:

  • written expression
  • linguistic skills
  • creative self-expression
  • capacity to analyse and interpret in a dispassionate and objective manner
  • capacity for reasoned criticism
  • data acquisition and analysis
  • research techniques
  • marshalling facts in support of arguments, and
  • evaluating the possible outcomes of alternative courses of action, with the emphasis varying according to the particular program chosen.


In short, the program helps students to operate in a complex and rapidly changing world.

Career Outcomes

In Australia and around the world, employers are increasingly seeing graduates who can speak and write clearly; who are computer literate and understand how to use technology; who know about other countries, cultures and societies; who can solve problems creatively; and who have developed that flexibility of thought which technical and vocational training rarely encourages. Graduates with a Bachelor of Arts degree find jobs in, for example: advertising, journalism, radio and television; the arts, heritage and museology; diplomacy, interpreting and tourism; management, marketing and administration; politics, the public service, the police force and the armed forces; teaching, research and publishing; psychology, counselling and community work.

Articulation with other courses
Students who have completed a BA degree with sufficient merit are eligible to apply for entry to the Bachelor of Arts with Honours (BA(Hons)) degree. Details on eligibility and how to apply are contained in the BA(Hons) section of the Handbook.

Students completing the Honours degree with sufficient merit are able to apply for entry to a research higher degree such as Master of Arts (MA) or Doctor of Philosophy (PhD). Information on these courses is obtainable from the Office for Research and the Research Higher Degrees Handbook. In addition, there are postgraduate diplomas and coursework master degrees. Information on these courses is included in the Postgraduate section of this handbook.

After completing two full years of study in the BA degree, students can apply for entry to the Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) degree course. The BSW is taught on the Launceston campus only. Interested students should consult the BSW entry included in the Handbook.

BA students may apply to transfer to the Bachelor of Social Science or Bachelor of Social Science (Police Studies) degree course. Interested students should consult the relevant entries of the handbook.

BA students wishing to pursue a teaching career must also complete the two year Master of Teaching (MTeach) degree This is a postgraduate qualification taken after graduating with a BA. Information brochures are obtainable from Student Recruitment offices on both campuses and from the contact number for the MTeach.

Students currently studying for a degree in another faculty are able to apply to transfer to the BA degree course and will receive some credit for their previous successful study.

These course rules and specifications apply to students commencing the course in 2011. For students who commenced prior to 2011, the applicable course rules are those from the year of commencement. i.e. students who commenced in 2006 should refer to the 2006 Handbook.

  • Students normally complete a total of 300% (HECS weighting) of units made up of 100% first-year (level 100), 100% second-year (level 200) and 100% third-year (level 300). Students are permitted to take an additional 25% first-year (level 100) Group 1 units to count as second/third-year (levels 200/300) units towards the degree.
  • Students must also take sufficient units to complete two majors within the 300% total. A major is defined as sequential studies in one discipline made up of 25% at level 100 and 75% at levels 200/300 (a minimum of 100%). At least 25% must be at level 300.
  • Students may take one major (100%) from a discipline outside the BA schedule such as Fine Arts, Music, Management or Computing, with permission of the relevant head of school. This is made up of 25% at level 100 plus a maximum of 75% at levels 200/300. At least 25% must be at level 300. Units taken from outside the BA schedule are referred to as Group A units.
  • At level 100, students normally study four different subject areas - 4 x 25%. At level 200 and 300, students take sufficient units to complete majors in two of the disciplines which they have studied at level 100. The remaining units to make up the 300% total can come from any of the other first-year subjects they have studied or more units towards the majors.
  • Language students who enter the BA at level 200 in the language take only 75% of units at level 100 and take extra units at levels 200/300 in the language to make up the total required for the major and for the 300% required for the degree.
  • Full-time students normally take a 100% load each year to complete in the minimum time. Students who are working in addition to their study may take as little as 25% load in any one year, but should be mindful of the maximum time allowed for them to complete.
  • Students take a minimum of three years and a maximum of nine years to complete the degree.

Notes:

  • No unit can count twice as part of two different majors
  • The maximum percentage in any one discipline which can be counted towards the degree is 150%
  • At least 25% of units in a major must be at level 300
  • At the end of year 1, students must declare their intended majors and confirm them at the end of year 2
  • The maximum percentage at level 100 for any single discipline is 25%
  • Students must complete 25% at level 100 before progressing to level 200 units in that discipline
  • Permission for an overload (more than 50% in any semester) must be obtained from a sub-dean
  • Units cannot count towards the degree if the content is the same as another unit studied previously.

The Schedule of units which follows lists by discipline all units taught in the BA. Students should also consult the discipline entries in the Handbook to determine individual unit prerequisites plus the requirements for a major in the chosen discipline. Students intending to study a major in a discipline offered in another degree course (Groups 1A, 2A and 3A) eg Music, Management, Fine Arts, should consult the discipline entry in the Handbook to check the unit and major requirements in the particular discipline.

Course Structure

Faculty reserves the right to correct errors or inconsistencies, with or without notice, and to make changes to this schedule. However, Faculty will endeavour to ensure that no student is disadvantaged by such changes.

    Where there are alternative unit codes (eg HSD203/303) the unit may be taken either at level 200 or level 300. When students enrol, depending on whether they wish to study a unit as a Group 2 unit or a Group 3 unit, they should use the appropriate code e.g. HGA203 is the Group 2 code for the unit Social and Political Research while HGA303 is the Group 3 code for the same unit. Students should note that they must complete units from each Group to a minimum weight as set out in the specifications. Students are advised to check the unit descriptions to see what the prerequisites, corequisites and mutual exclusions are for each unit. These may vary depending on the level of the unit.
    Please note: some units are offered on two-year or three-year cycles. If a unit listed in this schedule is not being offered in 2009, it may be offered in the following year or the year after that. Check units details for confirmation.
