    Bachelor of Arts [A3A]


    The Bachelor of Arts is the ultimate, flexible university degree. With over twenty named majors, you can select subjects to build your knowledge, and electives to enhance your skills.

    Our students are curious about the big questions of life, embrace the joy of open enquiry, and are on a life-long quest for knowledge and inspiration. At the University of Tasmania, you will be part of an academic community that cares deeply about the topics that we teach and study.

    You will learn to influence cultural and social change, and you will gain the knowledge and creativity to envision better futures. You'll take on the world's cultural, environmental, and humanitarian challenges from multiple perspectives and gain the confidence to make a positive difference. In your first year, you will have the opportunity to visit Country with an Aboriginal Elder or knowledge holder as part of our curriculum's reflection of the value and place of Indigenous knowledges and perspectives.

    We also offer opportunities to study across different disciplines and add a major from another course offering. The Bachelor of Arts combines with a wide range of courses which allow you to deepen your knowledge and expertise within two separate study areas. It's also your chance to pursue a career and follow your passion at the same time.

    The Bachelor of Arts will equip you with a range of specialised and transferable skills that are highly sought after by employers: creative thinking, respect for multiple perspectives, and the ability to work effectively in a team environment.

    In your first year, you'll have the opportunity to visit Country with an Aboriginal Elder or knowledge holder, as part of our curriculum's reflection of the value and place of Indigenous knowledge and perspectives.
