The choices offered as part of the Bachelor of Arts degree will advance your understanding of yourself and your culture, will enable you to develop intercultural awareness through comparing your culture with other cultures, and to progress skills needed for living and working in a globalised world. Studies in the Bachelor of Arts degree will help you comprehend and appreciate how our past is shaping our future. The Bachelor of Laws prepares students for a career as a legal professional, both within Australia and overseas. It provides students with a thorough grounding in essential areas of substantive law and access to a wide choice of law elective subjects, including the option of completing a specialisation.
