The Bachelor of Arts will equip students for today's rapidly changing world. Students develop skills and capacities necessary to understand how the world has come to be the way it is today. The disciplines housed in the Bachelor of Arts degree share a common interest in addressing the fundamental questions of human social life. What do we need to know to create a better future, and what are the best ways of finding out? Students will see and appreciate the world afresh, developing the analytical and communicative abilities to enrich life and your community. Share in the rich and global dialogue on contemporary human cultures. Studying Arts and Humanities at UOW allows students to tailor their degree specifically to their interests. Our flexible options let you choose the direction your program takes, such as specialising in a political, historical, international or creative discipline. At UOW, students will learn from experts who head international committees and edit journals that have worldwide circulation, who are exploring socio-political issues in health, science and technology, law and the environment and who research the vibrancy of language and its origins, or the cultural impact of electronic culture.

Entry Requirements:

DOMESTIC STUDENTS - ATAR-BASED ADMISSION OPTIONS Guaranteed entry selection ranks Entry to this course can be gained with: Minimum ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank) International Baccalaureate (IB) Interstate equivalent (such as the Victorian ENTER or Queensland OP) Results in an overseas qualification deemed equivalent to Australian year 12 The minimum score for guaranteed entry (or for consideration if this course has limited places) is an ATAR-Selection Rank of 70 or an IB of 25. This includes the effect of adjustment factors. Adjustment factors, such as the subjects you are studying, the area in which you live or equity and access schemes, are taken into consideration and these will be combined with your ATAR to adjust your selection rank and make it higher than your ATAR. These adjustments used to be called bonus points. ASSUMED KNOWLEDGE AND RECOMMENDED STUDIES The University assumes students will have studied any 2 units of English. INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS Applicants need to have achieved the required score in a qualification equivalent to the completion of 13 years of schooling in Australia. In order to succeed in your chosen course, it is assumed you have completed relevant subjects in your senior high school studies or other relevant qualifications. This is particularly important for degrees which have a strong basis in Mathematics or Science.

Structure:

3 years full-time or part-time equivalent. Students construct their Bachelor of Arts degree by selecting majors and minors. Many of the majors and minors reflect areas of study that will be familiar (such as English, History, Politics) and some that may be less familiar (such as International Relations, Sociology and Environmental Humanities). Completing a major (or two) as part of your Bachelor of Arts degree will give you a set of skills that relate to the discipline you are studying (gaining expertise in History, for example) and also versatile skills in critical thinking, analysis, cultural intelligence, and conceptual frameworks. Because students can do more than one major, it is a good idea to choose widely in the first year, before settling on a major/or majors in the second year.

Subjects you can Study:

Archaeology and ancient history; Community culture and environment; Creative writing; Cultural studies; English literatures; Environmental humanities; French; History; Indigenous studies; International relations; Italian; Japanese; Legal Studies; Mandarin for non-Chinese background students; Mandarin for character background students; Philosophy; Photography; Politics; Science and technology studies; Sociology; Spanish; Writing and English literatures

Study Pathways:

If applicants can demonstrate they have met the learning outcomes for UOW subjects through prior learning, such as previous tertiary or TAFE qualifications, they may be eligible for credit towards their degree. Where relevant to the UOW degree, specified credit may be given for specific subject(s); where not relevant to the degree, unspecified credit may be awarded.
