Bachelor of Art

One degree. Endless opportunities. Discover your passion while equipping yourself with the skills to succeed in the changing, global workplace.

The future of work is unknown, with people and enterprise skills in increasing demand across all industries. UQ’s Bachelor of Arts graduates are ideally placed to thrive and adapt to this changing environment.

As an arts student you’ll develop your own innate sense of curiosity, resilience and entrepreneurial spirit, and graduate ready to tackle an uncertain future in an uncertain world.

With one of the most comprehensive course offerings in Australia, you have the opportunity to explore the subjects you love by choosing from more than 45 study areas across the humanities, social sciences and languages.

History gives you perspective, philosophy allows you to think and form arguments, music and theatre brings thoughts and feelings to life, while languages and social science allow you to explore different worlds and cultures.

You can even combine your Bachelor of Arts with 15 other undergraduate degrees including law, engineering, science or business, and complete 2 degrees in a shorter time.

The Bachelor of Arts provides you with creative and critical thinking skills that help you build a portfolio of skills and capabilities that can be transferred across industries such as government, health care, education, business and finance and higher education.

You’ll have access to a range of internships, work experience opportunities and field work tailored to your career aspirations. These will allow you to develop professional skills, build powerful networks, and learn how to thrive in the future workplace.
