Bachelor of Arts

Griffith University

With a variety of majors to choose from and the freedom to combine any two, Griffith University's Bachelor of Arts gives students the power to create their own unique skill set and prepare for the careers of the future. Whether students are looking for a career in management, leadership, journalism, public relations, policymaking, research and analysis, writing and communications or research, this degree will help them achieve their goals. Students have the option to develop specialist expertise in contemporary fields like security studies, Islam-West relations or politics and international studies, or pursue a professional path by studying journalism, public relations or creative writing. Students can also study more traditional fields including sociology, history or literary studies. The Griffith Bachelor of Arts offers a combination of traditional and emerging study areas relevant to an ever-changing global environment. Students will gain the understanding, insight and skills to find and communicate creative solutions to contemporary challenges. Students will also develop advanced writing and presentation skills, as well as research and project management skills. Plus, as a graduate, they will be equipped with in-depth knowledge about states, societies and cultures, past and present. In the final year, students will have the opportunity to complete an internship or work-based project, which will ensure that they graduate with the practical skills employers want.
