Bachelor Degree

An undergraduate degree is your first degree in a particular subject. This is usually a bachelor’s degree (generally three years) or a bachelor’s degree with honours (generally four years).

Why study Arts?

An arts degree is versatile and flexible, so you can study a range of subjects that interest you. Mix and match courses in literature, history, psychology, languages, and loads of other areas. It's like a choose-your-own-adventure degree!

Learn how to think critically, analyse and interpret complex information, and communicate your ideas effectively - all skills highly sought after by employers in a wide range of industries. You'll be exposed to different perspectives, cultures and ideas so you can broaden your horizons and challenge your assumptions. Plus, you'll be learning from passionate and knowledgeable lecturers who really love their subject areas.

An arts degree can be a great foundation for a wide range of careers. You can go on to work in fields like journalism, education, public policy, arts and culture, and more. Many employers value the well-rounded education an arts degree provides, so you may find yourself with unexpected job opportunities.
