Multidisciplinary Studies (Bachelor of Arts)

Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Communication and Culture

Why choose Multidisciplinary Studies (Bachelor of Arts)?


Multidisciplinary scholars ask questions such as: Does cultural heritage impact knowledge? How have classical texts influenced your worldview? Do the foundational ideas of academic disciplines overlap?

The multidisciplinary program doesn’t require a major, offering you the maximum flexibility to follow your unique interests. A minor field is required to help focus your studies and provide you with a cohort of peers who have similar academic interests. Your degree is built around a core of basic competencies in literature, communication skills and cultural heritages. You’ll graduate with the broad mix of general political, social and cultural knowledge that many employers value. 

Note: The Bachelor of Arts in Communication and Culture is a four-year multidisciplinary degree.

Career opportunities

As a graduate of the multidisciplinary program, you’ll be prepared for career opportunities in areas such as the civil service, the non-profit sector, and the business world. A multidisciplinary degree can also be used as a stepping-stone to graduate studies or another professional degree such as law, medicine, veterinary medicine, or education.
