The Diploma of Arts is a one-year diploma offered to regional students who do not wish to undertake a full three-year Bachelor of Arts, for either academic or personal reasons. A full-time study load in the Diploma is 120 credit points.
The Diploma of Arts offers an introduction to post-secondary study of Humanities and Social Sciences in a supportive learning environment. The Diploma offers structured support throughout the course. Successful completion provides a seamless pathway into the second year of the Bachelor of Arts.
