Faculty of Arts, Education and Social Sciences at James Cook University Australia

Welcome to JCU's largest and most diverse faculty.  The Faculty of Arts, Education and Social Sciences welcomes students from throughout the world for study abroad and full degree programs.

This is a Faculty with a broad charter, bringing together disciplines from the arts and humanities. Students in the Faculty of Arts, Education and Social Sciences will gain valued and important skills you will learn to be an effective communicator, creative analyst and problem solver. You will be able to access information and research topics effectively, and have a sound appreciation of other cultures and societies. You will be taught how to become a life-long learner with encouragement to take responsibility for your own learning and to work independently.

The Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Social Sciences degrees have flexible structures that allow you to tailor your studies to your own particular interests and career plans. Subjects from other faculties can be incorporated into these degrees, combining the generic skills of the arts and social sciences with those from areas such as business, information technology and the other sciences. A number of multi-disciplinary combinations have been created to widen your career options. They include Asia Pacific community development, communications, cultural heritage studies, public policy, social policy and womens studies. An exciting range of joint degree programs is also available. Professional degrees in Community Welfare, Education, Psychology, and Social Work can lead to accreditation with relevant professional bodies in Australia and in some overseas countries.

Graduates from the Faculty of Arts, Education and Social Sciences find interesting and rewarding careers across a wide range of areas including media and publishing, advertising, in government departments and non-government organisations, in health, education and welfare services, teaching in schools and the tertiary sector, in policy, cultural heritage, community development, and public and foreign affairs.
