This course is designed to provide students with basic skills and knowledge in a range of disciplinary studies in the humanities, arts and social sciences. It examines historic, environmental, social, behavioural and cultural features of humanity, allowing students to analyse, reflect upon and anticipate patterns of human conduct. Students will develop creative, critical and analytical skills to assist with future employment or to pursue further study. This course is an attractive option for students who would prefer to trial university study while gaining an introductory undergraduate qualification from which they could subsequently upgrade to a higher level undergraduate qualification. Especially for those students enrolled in a teacher education award, the course also provides a means to add an additional area of expertise to their qualifications, without having to commit to a full advanced diploma or bachelor degree.
