GENERAL INFORMATION

The Bachelor of Arts in the Liberal Arts is a three-year course, and is available on both a full time and part time basis.

In a liberal arts degree you gain mastery of the foundational tools of learning –  learning how to think, write, and speak well – while also receiving a deep immersion in the disciplines of philosophy, theology, literature and history. Each student can choose to major in one of these four disciplines.

​The Bachelor of Arts in the Liberal Arts is comprised of 24 units: 18 core units and 6 electives. The units a student chooses to take for their electives will determine which major (or majors) they will graduate with at the end of their degree. Students are not required to undertake a major and may choose to use their elective units to broaden their knowledge across different disciplines.

Course admission information, including the OP/selection rank and student profile for the Bachelor of Arts in the Liberal Arts, can be found here.

A multidisciplinary liberal arts education provides flexibility in the job market.  By cultivating transferable skills—like critical thinking, effective communication, managing complexity, creative problem-solving, synthesising data into arguments—the liberal arts equip students to pursue a broad range of careers.  Some of the most common are teaching, journalism, law, public policy, business, history, international relations, marketing, ministry, philosophy, social science, and academia.

Whereas a specialised undergraduate degree trains people for their first job, a liberal arts degree enables them to move into a second, third, or fourth job more easily.

Employers also recognise the importance of hiring workers with sound reasoning, analytical and communication skills.  Global leaders like Apple™ and Google™ have been intentional about hiring liberal arts graduates.

The Bachelor of Arts in the Liberal Arts forms a tool not for any single career but a key to unlocking many.
