Be a reporter covering natural disasters. Manage the social policy in the public and private sector. Curate exhibits in a museum. In this degree, you'll study a wide range of subjects across humanities, media and social sciences. But you'll also learn the skills you need to succeed in the workplace. The BA program includes a substantial core study of cultures and contemporary societies, with a focus on developing transferable skills for life and work. You also choose an interdisciplinary major of six courses in either Knowledge, Ideas and People or Texts, Creativity and Culture to explore areas of personal interest in more depth and achieve the disciplinary knowledge required for further study/development in professional areas such as information management, education and communication. When you graduate you're not limited to working in specialised areas. You could work across tourism marketing, curating museum collections or youth engagement programs, or in many other fields. You may go on to study education and teach your skills to others.
