     Bachelor of Arts

    BA(Curtin)

    This course is not available to International Onshore Students on Student Visas

    Introduction

    This course is designed for students located at the country campuses of Curtin to select from a range of available units within the humanities disciplines. It is suitable for students seeking a broad-based undergraduate degree with the potential for specialisation at postgraduate level. Courses of study will be constructed around each student's individual interests, drawing from the units available to the student within the nominated study location.

    Course Entry Requirements/Prerequisites

    None.

    Specific Requirements
    STAT elements considered are E and either V or Q.

    Recognition of Prior Learning
    Applications for recognition of prior learning are assessed on an individual basis.

    Duration and Availability

    The course is three years full-time or equivalent part-time study. It is expected that a substantial component of the course will consist of external study.

    Course Organisation

    The course structure consists mainly of elective units and enables the combination of a variety of available units relevant to a wide range of employment opportunities and to further study. There is an opportunity to select units from those being taught at the campus within other courses, external study options, units offered through Open Universities Australia, online units or project-based learning (at third-year level). Opportunities for cross-institutional enrolment will also be considered. A minimum of eight units at second year level and a minimum of five units at third year level must be undertaken in this course.

    Career Opportunities

    The multidisciplinary nature of a Bachelor of Arts provides broad analytical training instead of specialisation in any one area, thus maximising the career paths that can be followed. It is expected that many graduates will undertake postgraduate study in order to specialise.

    Additional Course Expenses
    Students may be expected to purchase a number of textbooks, readers and other essential study materials.

    Special Note

    Students who elect to transfer from the Bachelor of Arts into one of the more specialised Curtin Bachelor of Arts degrees during the course of their undergraduate study may be required to undertake additional units in order to achieve a satisfactory level of specialisation.
