Course Description

The humanities deal with the histories, literatures and cultures of human civilisation, while the social sciences involve sociology, anthropology, political behaviours and other forms of human behaviour and organisation. With a choice of three European and four Asian language majors in this bachelor's degree (as well as the option to undertake individual units in Greek, Latin or Spanish) you can learn a new language and study its related popular culture, art, film and literature. The School of Music provides opportunities for developing performance skills in instrumental or vocal studies, composition and the study of musicology and music education. You will be engaged in a broad range of learning styles, from traditional lectures to interactive tutorials and practical workshops involving digital media. Staff members are not only dedicated teachers but renowned scholars and researchers who are international leaders and experts in their fields.

Studying Arts equips you for every aspect of life. It enables you to discover your talents, interests and abilities and develop them fully. An Arts degree helps you develop highly sought after skills such as critical thinking, communication, reasoning ability and problem-solving. As an Arts student you can choose to undertake the Arts Practicum as part of your course. This provides you with valuable workplace experience. Many Arts students elect to study abroad for one or two semesters at one of the renowned universities with which we have an exchange agreement.
