It Starts with Arts
With more than 30 majors and hundreds of electives to choose from, and the freedom to combine them your way, Griffith’s Bachelor of Arts gives you the power to create your own unique skill set and prepare for the careers of the future.
As computers behave more like humans, the best way to prepare for a successful career is to master the skills that artificial intelligence never will, and that employers demand. LinkedIn’s research on the job skills most sought-after by employers in 2020 found that the four most-wanted “soft skills” were creativity, persuasion, collaboration and adaptability. With Griffith’s Bachelor of Arts degree you’ll learn to think critically and creatively, to innovate, collaborate, communicate for influence and harness the power of your ideas.
You will have the flexibility of studying on-campuses or online through our digital campus, and you can choose to study part-time or full-time, over two or three trimesters each year.

Bachelor of Arts graduate
Bachelor of Arts graduate Donisha Duff says Griffith helped launch her career in public and community service. ‘Griffith opened the door to a world of possibilities. My undergraduate studies in humanities enabled me to explore a range of interests from film studies, contemporary literature to political studies and sociology,’ she said. As an advocate for health and supporter of girls’ and women’s educational and career opportunities, Donisha has worked tirelessly to improve pathways for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. ‘My BA(Hons) prepared me for a pathway to some high level policy development. This has taken me from the public service to the ministerial office of the first Federal Indigenous Health Minister and now to my position as General Manager for the Deadly Choices preventative health program.’
