Study the Core overseas
Arts students can opt to study the university core unit UNCC300: Understanding Self and Society at one of ACU's partner universities in Paris, Florence, Milan, London and Beijing. The unit is also being offered at our campus in Rome.
Beginning with questions of personal identity and values, in this unit students consider various questions of human existence, meaning and purpose as they arise in the contemporary world. How we answer such questions shapes all our interactions personal and professional and governs our responses to the situations we encounter.
Complete your Community Engagement overseas
School of Arts students also have the opportunity to complete HUMA247 Community Engagement and the Civic Professional by participating in the two-week community engagement program 'Live, Give, Learn' in either Thailand or Cambodia.
These programs are supported by a partnership between ACU's Institute of Advanced Community Engagement (IACE) and Challenges Abroad Australia (CAA).
