The Bachelor of Arts is the ultimate, flexible university degree. With over twenty possible majors or minors, you can select subjects to build your knowledge, and electives to enhance your skills. You can study across different disciplines, go on exchange with international partners, and gain real-world experience through placements or internships. You can create your own future and build your own career.

Our diverse range of disciplines includes: European Languages and Studies, Sociology and Criminology, English, History and Classics, Philosophy and Gender, Asian Languages and Studies, Politics and International Relations, Journalism and Media, Aboriginal Studies, and other disciplines of Psychology, Behavioural Studies, and Geography and Environmental Studies.

Students can develop their language skills in a native-speaking environment, or undertake culture or media research, take part in Buddhist Studies in India, or professional placement opportunities by volunteering in non-government organisations across Asia, with our In-country programs.

Students may also be able to gain experience through a variety of internships in politics, non-government organisations or the public sector as part of their degree.

Our Arts degrees give you more than in-depth knowledge of your chosen field: they give you the vital skills employers are demanding globally – skills like critical thinking, research, effective communications, and the ability to balance cultural difference while working towards a common goal.

Did you know you can study your Bachelor of Arts anywhere, anytime? Choose from a range of majors available online.

Intended Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of the Bachelor of Arts you will be able to:

Knowledge

  • Demonstrate a broad general knowledge from a range of humanities and social science disciplines and an in-depth knowledge in one or more of these disciplines

Critical Thinking & Research Skills

  • Seek out and evaluate critically new information and different perspectives on diverse cultures and societies

Communication

  • Communicate disciplinary perspectives and knowledge effectively, to specialist and non-specialist audiences using written, oral and visual means

Intercultural Competence

  • Recognise and reflect on social, cultural, political, ethical, environmental issues in the local, cross-cultural and global contexts

Work Readiness

  • Demonstrate self-management, creativity, flexibility, initiative and resilience in readiness for diverse workplace demands

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.

Course structure

This degree consists of a total of 24 units.

  • Unit level requirements for the degree are:
    • Introductory level units (100 coded): 8 minimum and 10 maximum;
    • Intermediate level units (200 coded): 6 minimum and 10 maximum;
    • Advanced level units (300 coded): 6 minimum and 10 maximum;
    • And will include:
      • 1 major of 8 units: 2 introductory, 2 intermediate, 4 advanced units.
      • 1 minor of 4 units: 2 introductory, 2 intermediate units.
      • 3 degree electives: two must be introductory and one at intermediate or advanced level (to meet the overall requirements of the minimum and maximum level of units for the whole degree) – please see the list of degree electives available by discipline/study area at the bottom of this page.
      • 7 student electives: individual units from any other study area in the University that you have the prerequisite to take (including additional BA and/or Breadth units). With careful planning it may be possible to use the student electives to complete a second major or another minor - it is your choice.
      • 2 breadth units: 1 introductory level unit and 1 introductory or intermediate or advanced level unit.

The Bachelor of Arts has a choice of 24 majors. All majors in the Bachelor of Arts are also available as a minor, with the exception of Behavioural Studies. The major(s) and minor(s) must be in different study areas.

Only where an advanced speaker of a language is permitted to replace the 2 Introductory language units with Intermediate or Advanced level language units, may the student complete the degree with 6 Introductory units minimum. If progressing with the language as a major, the student must complete additional intermediate or advanced level units to make up the total required for the major and for the 24 units required for the degree. Advanced speakers cannot later enrol in the replaced Introductory language units.

Students wishing to progress to Honours in Psychology must complete both a Psychology Major and a Behavioural Science Minor.

The Tourism major and Legal Studies major can only be taken as a second major in the 3 year Bachelor of Arts using student electives, in which case the breadth unit should be taken as degree electives (subject to approval).

If a student does not know what to major/minor in, they should choose 3-4 pairs of introductory units in the first year and can finalised their choice of major(s) and minor(s) at the end of the first year.

Provided you have the relevant prerequisites it may be possible to study intermediate and advanced level units concurrently; or to study advanced level units before the intermediate units. This may occur when units are offered on an odd or even year rotation.

If unsure about the possibilities within the Bachelor of Arts degree (ie choice of majors/minors; what to enrol in each year), please contact Arts Student Central at Arts.Faculty@utas.edu.au for advice.

Students are required to complete 1 BA major and 1 BA minor minimum. With careful planning, it may be possible to complete for example 2 majors; or 1 major and 2 minors; or 2 majors and 1 minor. To discuss further, please contact Arts Student Central in person or by email: Arts.Faculty@utas.edu.au; or call 61 3 6226 7814 or 61 3 6324 3579.

In 2015, English was one of nine University of Tasmania subjects included in the QS World University Rankings by Subject. We offer a broad and dynamic program across the key areas of contemporary English studies: literary studies, screen studies, theatre studies, cultural studies, and creative writing. A major in English builds knowledge of literary and cultural histories and practices, develops highly valued and transferable skills in the analysis and writing of literary and non-literary texts, and fosters expertise in written and oral communication. An English major also trains students in research, so that graduates are able to locate, assess and use resources to construct coherent, persuasive arguments.

Specialising in prose fiction and creative non-fiction, the English program’s creative writing stream is made up of a suite of three undergraduate units. While students may choose to create stand-alone works of short fiction at each year level, they may also produce instalments of a more substantial creative work across the three units. More information about the units is available here:    HEN104 Creative Writing 1        HEN204 Creative Writing 2       HEN318 Creative Writing 3

In order to complete a major in English, students complete:

• Two compulsory introductory (100-level) English units, HEN101 English 1A and HEN102 English 1B. These units focus on selected texts from varied genres and time periods and build skills and knowledge foundational to the discipline.

• Two intermediate (200-level) English units of their choice. Students are strongly encouraged to complete HEN201 Telling Tales: Literature and Narrative and HEN202 Literary Classics and the Canon.

• Four advanced (300-level) English units. A rotating suite of units provides the opportunity for students to pursue their own interests and to study key areas in more depth.

The History major begins with the 2 compulsory Introductory units HTA101 History 1A and HTA102 History 1B . These units provide students with an introduction to the skills required of all historians, such as identification and analysis of primary sources and secondary sources, and production of written work which abides by the academic conventions of the History discipline. The two units cover broad geographies and chronologies, and they also introduce students to a range of historical themes. These two units will prepare students well as launching pads for whichever upper-level units they choose to study for the rest of their History major.

In order to gain a major in History you must:
1. successfully complete the two Introductory History units (HTA101 and HTA102), AND
2. you must successfully complete two Intermediate History units and four Advanced History units from the list of History units in the History major schedule. A maximum of two cross-listed units (ie non-history units) can be included in the History major at Intermediate and Advanced level (I.e. No more than 25 points of cross-listed units can count towards the History major)".
3. While you are free to choose whichever six Intermediate/Advanced level units you like (provided you follow the requirements in (2) above), we suggest that you choose one or two specialisations you would like to develop in your History major. Here a specialisation means a group of three or more units that share common elements. Some of our different units share a focus on a particular region, others share a focus on a particular period of history, while others share a focus on a particular theme or themes. For your convenience, we have grouped our different History units into specialisations as listed below. Some units fall into more than one specialisation.
For a grid of HTA units, and their relevant specialisations, please click here to view all units

Cross-listed units
Note that we have also included the list of cross-listed units from other disciplines which can be counted towards a History major. This will help you to see how these cross-listed units can also be used to help you build up your focus on a certain specialisation.
