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.
