Programme details:

NQF Level 7 | Humanities and Arts | Part Time Study | SAQA ID 62761
Flexible learning. Limitless possibilities.  The Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree prepares you for work in many disciplines and is an excellent foundation for careers in human resources, public relations, communications, teaching, psychology and political science. Our BA degree is a broad and flexible qualification rounded in the behavioural and social sciences. This degree aims to develop critical thinking and provide you with an in-depth understanding of human behaviour from different perspectives. You will be introduced to the fields of general  and industrial psychology and will have a choice of Human Resources, English or Politics as a second major. As you progress to Year 3, you will learn how to apply theoretical  knowledge gained throughout the duration of this degree to real-world contexts.
Because of our degree’s unique emphasis on practical application, you will select, conduct and present a research project and complete Work Integrated Learning (WIL) in certain streams during Year 3. In addition, by introducing you to research, we are preparing you for postgraduate studies, a unique offering of this undergraduate degree. This blended approach ensures that you graduate with essential work skills such as critical thinking and problem-solving, being innovative  and adaptable to change, collaborating in teams and communicating effectively. The success of our BA lies in its flexibility of subject choice, a curriculum that is relevant, Technology Enhanced Learning 
(TEL) and smaller classes, as well as teaching staff with both  industry and academic experience. We give you the opportunity to tailor your subject choice to specialise in an area that interests you the most.
