Professional Pathways: Humanity and Society

Professional Pathways: Humanity and Society is a minor within the Bachelor of Arts that aims to enhance your employability. It complements your discipline-specific studies by developing your professional skills and preparing you for the future of work.

“My confidence has expanded exponentially through these programs. I have received industry advice, experienced hands-on volunteering  opportunities, participated in team-work, and presented speeches, all skills that were well-guided and supported by the teachers involved. I have had industry professionals come and speak to me, been connected to interesting new contacts and gained a wider understanding of what is available after study.” Holly Pearce, Bachelor of Arts 

HUMN1500 has helped me understand how I can use narrative to communicate my story to employees, which I think will be a valuable tool in the future. I have also learnt about the meaning of community and the various elements or groups that make a community and how it is changing. We have also learnt how to structure an effective resume, which is certainly a skill I would not have learnt in other disciplines.” Willem Jansz, Bachelor of Arts
