Curriculum and Length of Degree

Obviously suited to future careers in education, politics and government, media and communication, law and business, the interdisciplinary nature of our BA degree prepares graduates more generally for the ‘world of work’. The programme incorporates classical elements in the study of the humanities. Evidence consistently demonstrates that influential leaders in all sectors of society - government, business, legal, medical, educational and others - have a solid intellectual grounding in the liberal arts, especially the humanities. We put an emphasis on developing our students' ability to think independently and critically. This is why our graduates are poised to succeed in the South African and global contexts alike.
