Working closely with an academic supervisor, you will develop valuable skills in designing and managing independent projects in your area of interest and, by the end of the Bachelor of Arts with Honours from University of Tasmania , you will be equipped with advanced research, analytical and communication skills that will prepare you for entry to higher degree research, such as a Master of Arts or PhD, or other professional careers.


In Australia and around the world, employers are increasingly seeing graduates who can speak and write clearly; who are computer literate and understand how to use technology; who know about other countries, cultures and societies; who can solve problems creatively; and who have developed that flexibility of thought which technical and vocational training rarely encourages.
