    • the ability to communicate effectively in a range of ways;
    • the ability to work both independently and collaboratively;

Career Opportunities

A Bachelor of Arts is, in many ways, the most valuable degree of all. This is because Arts graduates are not as restricted in what they can undertake relative to those with highly specialised degrees. Examples of career paths include management, public relations, foreign affairs, education, business, human resources, research, psychology and archaeology. The employability of Arts graduates is a reflection of the skills they acquire during their study and this is becoming widely acknowledged.
