Arts and Humanities
Tasmania has an excellent focus on arts and humanities. Its new Media School is the first of its kind in Australia, with significant national industry partners including MONA, News Corp, ABC and Fairfax.
Arts, Humanities and Social Science degrees in Tasmania are known for their flexibility and diversity, making them ideal degrees for first-time studiers. There are also many research and higher-degree options available in Tasmania focused on the needs of the population locally and globally.
The University of Tasmania has an internationally recognised research culture, with programs in History & Classics and Philosophy and Gender Studies ranking above world standard1.
Tasmania offers a large range of humanities and social-science based study areas, including media, politics and international relations, social work, sociology and criminology, English, history and media. Due to the wide range of disciplines on offer, the career opportunities are also extremely diverse and can take students around the country and the world.
Tasmania has recently boosted its media study program with a new Media School located in the picturesque Salamanca area. The school offers a Bachelor of Media, an internationally recognised qualification which allows students to develop practical skills, learn how to utilise new media technologies, and build a portfolio of work through engaging in industry placements. With the strong links to the media industry in Tasmania, nationally and across the Asia region, studying media in Tasmania is an ideal opportunity to begin a diverse and rewarding career.
