The Bachelor of Arts is a general, flexible degree which allows students to match academic interests with career aspirations to create a personalised course progression. Studying humanities will develop general knowledge and specific intellectual skills relating to human thought and relations, such as the way we communicate or how the past has affected the present. Social science analyses and explains societies and the relationships of individuals within those societies.
Visual arts studies offered by the Faculty of Art, Design and Architecture in the studio practice and theory areas are chosen from visual practices, or the theory of art and design.
