Apply for a Bachelor of Arts program

Arts as Breadth options
The Faculty of Arts have over 30 study areas, including languages, for you to enrich your undergraduate degree through breadth subjects.
Most of your core BA subjects will be offered by the Faculty of Arts. Breadth subjects come from outside the Faculty and include disciplines such as agriculture, environment, law, medicine and visual arts. BA students must complete a minimum of four breadth subjects.
The Bachelor of Arts degree is a three-year (full-time) course that offers unique flexibility and a broad range or subjects.
The BA does not lead to a single career destination and students often raise questions about what they might do, and how they can establish a career direction. This series of videos describes the steps you can take to work out a career direction.
Bachelor of Arts (Extended)
The Bachelor of Arts (Extended) is a four-year degree that will provide a pathway for Indigenous students to embark on careers that build on a strong Arts background.
The Bachelor of Arts honours is a specialised year of study for students who have achieved academic excellence in their undergraduate degree. An honours year allows you to deepen the knowledge gained from your BA.
Single subject studies
Single subject studies (Community Access Program) allows you to enrol in single subjects from the broad areas of humanities, languages and social sciences that are part of the BA but without the commitment required to complete the whole degree.
