What will I learn?

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.

Media and Communication

From our 24-hour news cycle and endless streaming services to social media posts building brands and inspiring social change, media and communication connect every aspect of our personal and professional lives. Media and communication graduates are sought by many industries looking for people whose understanding of media goes beyond their own favourite shows and social media accounts. An understanding of media and communication opens doors to a wide range of exciting careers.

Our island campus of Tasmania is the start of your journey. The Media School is uniquely co-located with leading media organisations in Hobart. You will bump shoulders and share facilities with practitioners from the news, communication and the screen industries. Outside, you’re a short walk from Parliament House, the courts, museums, galleries and performance spaces, and Hobart’s docks, which are the world’s scientific gateway to Antarctica.

This major is tailored for students curious about media from a cultural and sociological perspective. Who are the content makers and who are the audiences? Who are the influencers and how are do we understand their influence? Students will learn skills in media analysis and develop their skills in research and professional writing.
