The Diploma in Arts allows students to pursue studies in one of the Arts majors while completing an undergraduate degree (usually in a faculty other than Arts). It is also open to students who have already completed an undergraduate degree who want to complement their studies, pursue studies in a different field, or 'upskill' for professional development purposes (e.g. secondary school teachers). It is the equivalent to a full major (24 units) and for students enrolled in an undergraduate degree generally adds a further year to the length of studies. The Diploma in Arts will allow students who have already graduated with a Bachelor degree to progress to an Honours year or further postgraduate study in a different field. The Diploma is offered in any of the Arts majors listed in the Bachelor of Arts program other than languages, and includes a Liberal Arts major comprising courses drawn from the current majors.
