as many of you know next year i will be attending latrobe university to complete an arts course. for a long time i was convinced i didnt want to go uni but now the force of the future has hit me and i must accept that uni is the only way to guarentee a decent future for me. as much as i dont like the think about it if my tattooing dream fails at least i will have a degree to support me.
now according to latrobe their arts course description is that:
this course offers students more than the opportunity to become an expert in a particular field of knowledge: students learn how to handle complex bodies of information, to analyse and evaluate information, and to argue clearly, using the spoken and written word and work with a constructive openness and flexibility of mind. Employers value these qualities for their durability in a climate of rapid technological change.
The degree allows students to create a course that suits their own interests and needs. In addition to the wide range of studies in humanities and social sciences, students can include studies from other areas such as computer science, accounting or mathematics (provided all relevant selection criteria are satisfied).
now comes the hard choice for me. which classes to take? i can only take four and hopefully major in one yet there are so many i would love to take. the selection is as follows:
Melbourne (Bundoora): Aboriginal studies, anthropology, archaeology, art history, Asian studies, Australian studies, Chinese, cinema studies, English, European studies, French, gender, Greek studies, sexuality and diversity studies, history, Indonesian, international development, Italian studies, Japanese, Latin-American studies, legal studies, linguistics, media studies, modern Mediterranean studies, North American studies, peace studies, philosophy, politics, religion and spirituality studies, Sanskrit, sociology, Spanish, theatre and drama. Additional studies include AUSLAN, Catalan, Hindi and Portuguese
the ones that immediatly jump out at me are archaeology, art history, australian studiess, cinema studies, english, gender, sexuality and diversity studies, history, international development, north-american studies, peace studies, philosophy, religion and spirituality studies and sociology.
out of the list that i would LOVE to do i have narrowed it down to art history, cinema studies, gender, sexuality and diversity studies, history, philosophy and religion and spirituality studies.
so now i ask if your reading this and am either currently studying any of these subjects, you have studied one of these subjects or you know someone who has PLEASE comment on you opinions and give as much feedback possible so i can have a little help deciding!
thanks a bunch,
