Bachelor of Arts and Sciences: Thinking outside the box
The Bachelor of Arts and Sciences programme is designed for intellectually ambitious students who want to take control of their learning and develop a broad set of scholarly skills in order to become leaders across a diverse range of fields to tackle important global challenges.
Students will gain social intelligence, and creative problem-solving and analytical skills, and be aware of ethical responsibility. They will also learn how to intersect and integrate disciplines through case studies, capstone experiences, and learn from thought leaders, and movers and shakers.
