Bachelor of Arts

The Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree offers students a broadly formative education that is useful in any occupation requiring a culturally developed perspective. It provides students who intend specialising in a particular discipline with a meaningful context; it would be beneficial to people in any leadership position.

What is the 3-year degree?

The BA is a general formative degree to be completed over three years. It is recommended that students choose an academic plan with a specific core (2 majors over 3 years), 1 minor subject (for 2 years) and a limited number of other modules (called electives). The academic plans are designed to support students in choosing a more focused and coherent curriculum.

Admission Requirements?

  • National Senior Certificate
  • AP Score: 30+
  • A minimum of 50% for the school-leaving examination in English or Afrikaans.

What is the 4-year degree?

The four-year BA degree and the three-year BA degree are equivalent qualifications and differ only in terms of course duration. Another difference is that we require students to complete four compulsory development modules in the four-year degree that have the purpose of improving language, mathematical and learning skills.
