Program overview

There are an endless number of career opportunities available to Arts and Social Sciences graduates. More than half of all advertised positions that require a university degree do not specify a required degree discipline. The reason is that a university education, and especially a university education in Arts and Social Sciences, is as much about skill development as it is about content, and the skills developed in Arts and Social Sciences are highly valued by employers.
