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. 

Anthropology is the study of human life and experience and teaches people how to understand cultural difference. Graduates contribute such expertise to government, industry or community organisations working with people of diverse backgrounds and lifestyles. In Australia, this could mean work on migrant or ethnic issues, on how and why people may be prepared to adopt new technologies, or on resolution of Aboriginal native title claims and negotiation of resource developments like mining, tourism and fishing. International work might involve economic and social development in Pacific Island countries, attitudes to environmental conservation across the globe, or corporate and consumer activities.
