Bachelor of Arts

A Bachelor of Arts provides an interdisciplinary education that will introduce you to a variety of subjects, approaches, methods and ways of organizing knowledge. As an Arts graduate, employers will seek your research and analytical skills, creative and critical thinking abilities and computer and information literacy.

Arts is a four year program and covers a broad range of subject areas concerned with the study of human beings and the evolution and nature of global societies, ideas, and institutions. In your first two years of the program, you will select courses in fields like humanities, languages, social sciences as well as science and business to provide you with a broad foundation for advanced study in your chosen subject area during the final two years.

When you finish, you'll be prepared to go on to graduate school, professional schools, or straight into careers like the creative arts, the civil service, administration, business or journalism.
