Programme Description

The Bachelor of Arts degree is a three-year programme offered on a full-time basis. It provides students with a broad academic basis for students to gain a fuller understanding of the social world in which they live. It offers a flexible degree structure with a wide range of subjects that allow students more choice in the construction of their career path. Subjects that the student may choose from in a BA programme include amongst others: IsiNdebele, Siswati, English, Communication Studies, Portuguese, Geography, Tourism, Culture and Heritage Studies, Entrepreneurship, Economics, Psychology, Political Science, Industrial Psychology and Sociology. The degree requires students to choose three majors (specialised study taken to the third year).
