In the fourth year of the degree you will undertake advanced coursework and a substantial real-world industry, community, entrepreneurship or research project. As you develop a personal portfolio of expertise and high-level skills you broaden your opportunities and prepare yourself for future success.

Whatever your focus, when you undertake our Bachelor of Arts degree you will be guided by the expertise of an internationally respected group of educators.
