Bachelor of Arts

The Bachelor of Arts (BA) is an undergraduate degree comprising 24 units taken over 3 years of full-time study (or part-time equivalent).

In your first year as a BA student, you can select from units across a range of disciplines - including creative writing, economics, geography, history, legal studies, linguistics, literature, marketing, management, not-for-profit management, sociology and various languages. Before the end of your first year, you will be able to nominate a major in which to specialise - you will need to complete 8 units from that major (10 units for language majors).

Alongside your major, you will also take core units in research skills. This works towards a major project in your final year in which you will research a real-world organisation, diagnose issues and present solutions.

You can enrich your major with a second major (or a minor) in another discipline from the humanities and social sciences. Alternatively, you may decide to broaden your studies by selecting general electives from faculties such as business or mathematics, physical sciences and life sciences.

All undergraduate students also take one core unit per year from the School of Christian Studies.
