The Bachelor of Arts is your ultimate springboard into a wide range of careers and further study options.
The Bachelor of Arts will equip you with a range of specialised and transferable skills that are highly sought after by employers: creative thinking, respect for multiple perspectives, and the ability to work effectively in a team environment.
Deepen your understanding of the present by exploring the ancient past and connect with the histories, literatures, and cultures of ancient Greece and Rome. When you study ancient civilisations, you free yourself from the tyranny of the present. You come to understand the ever-changing nature of human societies, as well as the deep continuities that bind humanity together.
What careers relate to Ancient Civilisations?
Modern workplaces are invariably changing; responding to economic, political and social forces, which means employees need the basic intellectual capacities to adapt to change. Employers value Ancient Civilisation graduates with intercultural awareness and ethical responsibility.
Employers also depend on people who are effective communicators and decision-makers, with demonstrable skills in critical thinking, problem solving, research and investigation. These abilities are fundamental for graduates of Arts-related degrees from the School of Humanities.
