Bachelor of Arts

Flinders University

The Bachelor of Arts provides a high quality education suitable for today's society, featuring both depth of study and breadth of knowledge. Students are required to complete at least one major sequence and one minor sequence for the BA degree. It is possible to complete two major sequences. The BA's flexibility allows students to either: explore in-depth a single field of study (up to two-thirds of topics may be concentrated in a chosen field), or range widely and study several different fields of study (the BA allows students to graduate with one or two majors). The degree produces flexible, literate, independent and well-informed graduates, equipped with the transferable skills highly valued in the workforce. These include: communication and presentation skills (oral, written, electronic, graphic); skills in independent research and critical analysis; teamwork and interpersonal skills (including an understanding of cultural diversity); management and planning skills (including time and self-management skills); intellectual and creative skills; and computer literacy. BA graduates have the potential to become managers and leaders in the rapidly changing workforce of the 21st century.
