It Starts with Arts
With a wide variety of majors and hundreds of electives to choose from, Griffith’s Bachelor of Arts gives you the freedom and power to create your own unique skill set. You will learn to think critically and creatively, to innovate, collaborate and communicate for the future world of work.
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. These skills can lead to incredible careers, amazing journeys and brilliant ideas to help make the world a better place.
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.’
