The Diploma in Arts offers students an opportunity to develop a depth of disciplinary expertise together with the breadth of vision afforded by cross-disciplinary approaches to the area of humanities.
The Diploma in Arts is designed to develop communication and personal skills, creativity and a capacity for independent thought, adaptability to new situations and problem-solving skills, attributes increasingly demanded by employers. The Diploma is completed in a smaller, more supportive learning environment than usually found in first year undergraduate programs. The course is designed to develop students ability for self-directed study and build self-esteem through achievement within a tertiary environment.
A qualification in Arts can cover a broad range of humanities subjects from writing and literature, to studies of other cultures, religions and languages. By enrolling in nominated electives, the Diploma in Arts provides a guaranteed pathway into the Bachelor of Arts, as well as studies in Psychology, with up to 80 credit points equivalent of Advanced Standing.
