Possible career options
Put your creative and critical thinking skills to good use. Graduating with the BA degree can form a foundation for many careers as this degree helps students acquire a wide range of interpersonal skills, which can be put to use in various positions.  Some positions would require further training as is common with most three-year degrees, while others draw on the skills developed throughout the BA degree. The Eduvos programme provides for two core disciplines, which will enable students to have more than one option for postgraduate studies. The careers for you, as a BA graduate are varied and, depending on the study stream you select, could include:
•     Communications
•     Market Research
•     Public Relations
•     Research
•     Psychology-related fields
In addition to the above, the BA degree offers students the first stepping stone to the journey of becoming a psychologist 
(counselling, clinical, research, industrial/organisational). After completion of a BA degree, students need to complete additional postgraduate programmes to enter these professions. Entry into postgraduate programmes is often limited due
to strict selection processes.
