The degree equips students with creative, critical and analytical skills ideal for lifelong learning. The degree offers flexibility in career options and can provide a solid foundation for further studies. This is a flexible degree in which you can incorporate multiple subjects. Graduating students have the subject(s) of their specialisation within the degree appear on their testamur (eg Bachelor of Arts (Psychology) or Bachelor of Arts (Theatre and Performance).
A Bachelor of Arts is, in many ways, the most valuable degree of all. This is because Arts graduates are not as restricted in what they can undertake relative to those with highly specialised degrees. Examples of career paths include management, public relations, foreign affairs, education, business, human resources, research, psychology and archaeology. The employability of Arts graduates is a reflection of the skills they acquire during their study and this is becoming widely acknowledged.
