This program provides opportunity for specialisation in one or more areas through choice of a Major or Minor and Elective subjects. Graduates will be able to engage in analysis and evaluation of information but the level of independent critical analysis, reflection and application is less than that of a three-year degree as these skills are further developed in third year subjects which are not part of the Associate Degree. It is a pathway into a Bachelor of Arts and also an exit point from the Bachelor of Arts. Associate Degree in Arts graduates may engage in paraprofessional work in a variety of contexts such as church ministry, youth work, administration and support. They will be valued team members providing skills in analysis, problem definition and solving and communication.
