This degree provides a high quality education suitable for today's society, featuring both depth of study and breadth of knowledge. Students are required to complete at least one major sequence and one minor sequence for the BA degree. It is possible to complete two major sequences. The BA's flexibility allows students to either: explore in-depth a single field of study (up to two-thirds of your topics may be concentrated in a chosen field), or range widely and study several different fields of study (the BA allows you to graduate with one or two majors). The degree produces flexible, literate, independent and well-informed graduates, equipped with the transferable skills highly valued in the workforce. These include: communication and presentation skills (oral, written, electronic, graphic); skills in independent research and critical analysis; teamwork and interpersonal skills (including an understanding of cultural diversity); management and planning skills (including time and self-management skills); intellectual and creative skills; and computer literacy. BA graduates have the potential to become managers and leaders in the rapidly changing workforce of the 21st century.


Following the first year in which students will be exposed to at least three and usually four different areas of study, at least two of these will be taken to the second year of studies and at least one to third year. The remaining studies may be used to widen exposure to other areas of study or to consolidate studies in chosen specialities. In addition to these majors, students are also able to study minor sequences in: Archaeology, Indigenous Studies, International Affairs, Information Technology, Mathematics, Professional Studies and Sciences.
