Bachelor of Philosophy

University of Tasmania

The Bachelor of Philosophy is a companion degree for high achieving students who are critical and creative thinkers. People who are motivated to become the thought and action leaders of the future, who want to embrace the world around them, expand their university experience to include multi-disciplinary perspectives, and affect positive change wherever their future careers take them. It's a degree built of your choosing that you generally study in parallel with your principal degree, with unit options covering research, leadership and service, cultural understanding, and multidisciplinary perspectives. There is a particular focus on transferable, multidisciplinary skills, and cultural engagement, with many units breaking the classroom/exam tradition and providing you the option to undertake projects within local, state, national or even international communities. As a true high achiever reward program, domestic students who qualify for this program currently also receive a full HECS scholarship, meaning you can get a second degree full of amazing and enriching experiences for no extra cost while you complete your main degree.
