This course enables students to pursue their passion and career goals simultaneously with a choice of majors spanning traditional and humanities disciplines. Students will have an opportunity to explore cross-disciplinary studies to enhance their skills and interests, in areas that cover historical, critical, political, theoretical and creative practices that underpin our global cultures and industries. This multi-skilled approach is essential in contextualising and applying knowledge and experience in a broad range of employment fields. We also encourage work-related placement. To help students create exactly the undergraduate experience they want for their anticipated professional life, ongoing, professional support is provided throughout the course.
