The General Bachelor of Arts degree involves studying a range of undergraduate courses, mostly in the Humanities and Social Science faculties, and majoring in at least 2 streams of study. Contrary to other specialised BA degrees, the General BA degree does not restrict you to one area of study. Rather, it encourages students to explore different streams and equip themselves with a broader set of skills, thereby opening the door to a variety of careers.
This course looks at the University of Cape Town’s General BA degree but this is broad enough to be applied to various tertiary institutions.
