The Bachelor of Arts is a flexible degree that provides students with the optimal balance between a defined sequence of study and flexible course options. This innovative program has been designed to develop graduates with the key practical skills and interdisciplinary knowledge required to be the leaders of tomorrow. The program will provide students with highly developed skills in written communication, problem-solving, critical thinking and interpersonal understanding. A BA graduate is someone who has gained skills and knowledge and can apply these skills in many different jobs, careers and life situations. Students can choose from a wide range of majors, tailoring the degree to suit their own particular career aspirations. The program is also available in dual degree format. The honours program requires an additional year of study and calls for greater specialisation in a chosen area at a high standard of scholarship.
