University of Newcastle Australia program

BA Project

This capstone program, HASS3000, will give you the freedom to explore your interests in depth in the Humanities.

This program is part of the Bachelor of Arts degree offered by The University of Newcastle Australia

Explore your interests while honing your knowledge and skills in the Humanities

This is the third core program in the BA degree, bringing together Humanities students from all disciplines and subfields to put into practice the critical reasoning and research skills studied in HASS1000 and HASS2000.

You will hone your knowledge and skills through practical application and a major research project. This individual project can take the form of a traditional research paper or a creative, applied or digital outcome. It will demonstrate your capabilities in a range of areas that are demanded by employers in the knowledge economy, including digital communication, complex problem solving, initiative or enterprise, and creative thinking.
