Pursue the career you want

Your career path will require varying skills and specialist knowledge. In the Bachelor of Arts you can pair studies from more than 30 subject areas to gain the foundational knowledge you need to pursue the career you want. For example, pair media and communications with psychology for a career in marketing, or instead pair with creative writing for a career in journalism.

After your undergraduate degree, you can enter the workforce or progress to a specialised masters degree. Your graduate degree will be internationally recognised and set you apart from those who study a traditional Australian single or double degree. Choose a professional qualification like law or engineering, or specialist masters like marketing or management.
