O que eu aprenderei?

Whether you want to learn a new language or study a new culture, explore great books, ideas or minds, discover the past, analyse the present or consider the shape of the world's future, the Bachelor of Arts will expand your horizons and challenge you to think outside the box.

Offering broad choice across more than 45 subject areas in the humanities and social sciences, no two arts degrees are quite the same. You will study a major and a minor, choosing both from our broad choice across the humanities and social sciences, or selecting your minor from the University's shared pool.

Whatever your focus, when you undertake our Bachelor of Arts degree you will be guided by the expertise of an internationally respected group of educators. With arts and humanities at the University of Sydney consistently recognised as among the top 20 faculties globally in academic rankings, our Bachelor of Arts degree is both highly regarded and well supported by research leaders.

Study with the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences will hone your analytical skills and help you become an independent thinker, able to form and articulate judgements based on argument and evidence. Our graduates are in high demand from a broad range of employers, with career options as varied as the degree itself. Our alumni are invariably known for their ability to challenge assumptions, communicate effectively, research diligently and synthesise complex information to reach their goals.

As a reflection of our global outlook, you will be encouraged to take advantage of extensive exchange opportunities with leading universities overseas. A number of our majors offer internship placements, enabling you to develop your networks and gain invaluable work experience before graduation.

American Studies is a unique field that examines the history, culture, society, laws, foreign policy and politics of the US. Units examine the US's evolution and why it is a dominant cultural and political force in the 21st century. From the study of America's government to its popular culture, you will be challenged to think creatively about the construction and meaning of American identity and power, while developing analytic and research skills that span the humanities and social sciences.

An American Studies major will give you broad, multi-faceted knowledge of this complex, diverse and dynamic nation and its relationship with the broader world. You will analyse the US using a variety of different approaches. In addition to core American Studies units, you can take cross-listed units of study from the departments of English, Film Studies, History, Gender and Cultural Studies, Government, and Music, and from the United States Studies Centre. With such diversity of perspectives, an American Studies major is a unique opportunity to learn a variety of disciplinary approaches and methodologies.

Undertaking a major in American Studies will give you access to the widest range of US-focused units of study and to the largest concentration of academics working on the US, of any university in Australia.
