About this course

The Diploma in Arts is available to graduates of a Bachelor program in any field of study. Students enrolling in the Diploma are required to complete one major or two minors. It is a flexible program that allows students to complete arts courses in a new area of study in order to gain additional qualifications. Upon completion and subject to satisfactory performance and entry requirements, this program may enable students eligibility for entry into Honours, to postgraduate coursework and, via Honours, entry to research postgraduate study. The Diploma in Arts is a commonwealth supported (HECS-Help) program. 

The early Mediterranean cultures provide the foundations of Western civilisation and so their study is highly relevant today. Students will learn about the history, literature, religion, philosophy, social customs, art and architecture of ancient peoples as diverse as the Egyptians, Persians, Greeks and Romans. Courses span a huge period from the Bronze Age to Late Antiquity and focus on a variety of important individuals, ideas and achievements, e.g. Alexander the Great, Greek democracy, and the rise of Imperial Rome. Since their achievements continue to influence modern ideas and institutions, the study of Ancient History is a good way to understand the modern world.
