A BA will bestow on you a multitude of transferable skills, which employers of every industry are desperately seeking.
These include communication and collaboration, agility and adaptability, and analytical and leadership skills. Part of the reason VU’s BA provides this skillset is the focus on hands-on, practical learning.
Dr Jacinda Woodhead, editor and artistic director at Overland magazine, employs interns at one of Australia’s most distinguished literary journals. She says:
“VU interns are always independent thinkers with a lot of ideas, which is something that’s obviously nurtured by a learning environment that encourages debate, interrogation and creative thinking.”
