Be a reporter covering natural disasters. Manage the social policy in the public and private sector. Curate exhibits in a museum. In this degree, you'll study a wide range of subjects across humanities, media and social sciences. But you'll also learn the skills you need to succeed in the workplace. The BA program includes a substantial core study of cultures and contemporary societies, with a focus on developing transferable skills for life and work. You also choose an interdisciplinary major of six courses in either Knowledge, Ideas and People or Texts, Creativity and Culture to explore areas of personal interest in more depth and achieve the disciplinary knowledge required for further study/development in professional areas such as information management, education and communication. When you graduate you're not limited to working in specialised areas. You could work across tourism marketing, curating museum collections or youth engagement programs, or in many other fields. You may go on to study education and teach your skills to others.

Federation University Australia (FedUni) is one of the country’s leading universities, with an enviable reputation for teaching excellence and graduate employment rates.

Headquartered in regional Victoria, with campuses in Ballarat, Gippsland, the Wimmera and Berwick in Melbourne, FedUni’s standing is based on nearly 150 years of education delivery.

A new Berwick Campus caters for the growing south-east Melbourne area, while a new Brisbane Campus and student support centre in Malaysia cater to the international student market.

FedUni embraces the freedom and dynamism that come from being a progressive university with close links to industry, business, communities and technology.

It is also recognised as a welcoming and friendly university, with students drawn from regional centres and metropolitan cities as well as from overseas.

Known for its supportive, inclusive environment, FedUni offers affordable study options (including online), learning assistance to help you stay at uni, small class sizes, friendly staff and accessible academic support. We are also one of few universities that offer free on-campus parking for students.

Our students have the opportunity to stay on campus with a range of residential options. The university places great emphasis on the quality of its teaching and learning, the student experience, and importantly, employability once you have graduated.

As a dual-sector university, we deliver a range of programs through higher education and TAFE, and have the ability to find the right pathway for your success.

Facilities such as the Nanya Environmental Research Station in western New South Wales and the Manufacturing and Industry Skills Centre in central Ballarat anchor the range of programs that FedUni delivers.

It is one of only four such centres worldwide to be selected by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) as a member of the IOC Medical Research Network.
