Level of study: Bachelor's Degrees

Summary

The Bachelor of Arts is the ultimate, flexible university degree. With over twenty named majors, you can select subjects to build your knowledge, and electives to enhance your skills.

Our students are curious about the big questions of life, embrace the joy of open enquiry, and are on a life-long quest for knowledge and inspiration. At the University of Tasmania, you will be part of an academic community that cares deeply about the topics that we teach and study.

You will learn to influence cultural and social change, and you will gain the knowledge and creativity to envision better futures. You’ll take on the world’s cultural, environmental, and humanitarian challenges from multiple perspectives and gain the confidence to make a positive difference. In your first year, you will have the opportunity to visit Country with an Aboriginal Elder or knowledge holder as part of our curriculum’s reflection of the value and place of Indigenous knowledges and perspectives.

We also offer opportunities to study across different disciplines and add a major from another course offering. The Bachelor of Arts combines with a wide range of courses which allow you to deepen your knowledge and expertise within two separate study areas. It's also your chance to pursue a career and follow your passion at the same time.

Gender and Diversity

When you study Gender & Diversity you will be immersed in an interdisciplinary exploration of the meaning and impact of gender, race, and sexuality on all our lives. Assumptions about sex, gender and race have influenced everything from our most fundamental understandings of what it is to be human to ancient poetry to contemporary fashion. You will become familiar with a variety of theoretical approaches to the subject and will be given a range of methodological tools to help you understand those cultural assumptions and practices which have shaped our lived experiences as gendered, racialised beings.

The core units in Gender & Diversity examine questions of identity, power and change, including how understandings of human bodies and sexuality have changed over time. You will analyse the various ways that masculinities and femininities are enacted in the world, and develop a critical awareness of the gendered and racial dynamics which influence these masculinities and femininities. All human beings live within a particular gender order and racial system: to study gender & diversity is to become more aware of the possibilities and constraints of these structures and their effect on your life and the world’s people and processes.

Knowledge gained in this major will prepare you for work in all kinds of settings where an appreciation of diversity matters. This includes the community sector, equity and diversity units in businesses and institutions, discrimination law and human resources.

Available: On campus Hobart and online.
