Program Aims

The aim of the Diploma of Arts is to provide students with an opportunity to explore a humanities or social sciences discipline in some depth. Successful completion of the DipArts means gaining a recognised qualification. It also means guaranteed entry into the Bachelor of Arts. DipArts students will explore disciplines that study the way humans recognise, record and debate human practices, meanings and values. This will aid them in developing contemporary understandings both of the human condition and of how society operates. Students will have the opportunity to gain crucial lifelong learning and transferable generic skills, such as critical thinking and problem solving. They will be able to apply these skills to a range of employment opportunities and life situations.
