Welcome to the

Faculty of Arts

I extend to you my very warm welcome to New Zealand’s leading

faculty for the study of the humanities and social sciences. I invite

you to discover how you can transform your future through your study

towards a Bachelor of Arts (BA) from the University of Auckland.

The BA is the degree of choice for students

seeking to be informed global citizens with

a sophisticated understanding of the forces

that influence our lives. It’s also an excellent

qualification for anyone wanting to pursue a

career in a dynamic and globalised employment

market.

By studying for a BA, you gain exciting

opportunities to engage with some of today’s

critical issues and develop a deep understanding

of the cultures, societies and ways of thinking

that shape our world. You’ll be learning from

internationally recognised academic staff who

are committed to your success. Through their

teaching and research, our staff seek to make

a difference in our world – whether they are

uncovering the life experiences of women in

prison or making award-winning documentaries.

Our graduates also make an impact in their

work, their communities and in the wider world.

We have BA graduates in professional roles

such as Business Development Co-ordinator,

Marketing Specialist, Youth Worker, Research

Writer, Project Manager and Communications

Specialist. They work in London, Singapore,

Melbourne, Hong Kong, Wellington and

Auckland for aid organisations, multinational

companies, local government and advertising

agencies.

You will also have many different career choices

throughout your future because your BA study

will give you the enduring capabilities and skills

that employers value. You will develop the ability

to think critically and creatively, to communicate

effectively and write clearly, and to research,

analyse and present complex information. These

skills are valuable for any future employment.

Should you choose to combine another degree

with the BA as part of a conjoint programme,

you can graduate with a powerful set of different

skills that combine your all-important BA skills

with those you will have gained through your

second degree.

Come and join our inspirational staff, students

and graduates and you too can transform your

world. I believe you will find your time with us

rewarding and that it will open many doors for

your future.
