Bachelor's Degree in Humanities and Social Sciences in Australia

Humanities and Social Sciences

A bachelor's degree is awarded at the successful completion of an undergraduate academic program. It is often the first degree a student received in his or her academic career. It typically takes four years of full-time study to earn a bachelor’s degree.

The Bachelor of Arts is a versatile degree that provides students with the optimal balance between a defined course of study and flexible schedule options. This innovative program has been designed to develop graduates with the essential practical skills and interdisciplinary knowledge required to be the leaders of tomorrow.

Australia has the third largest number of foreign students in the world despite having a community of only 23 million. These are strong academic credentials, but Australian institutions are just as highly ranked as the cities that house them around the native land.
