Alumni + Giving

Research shows that an Arts degree leads to meaningful, rewarding careers, but it takes graduates longer to establish themselves than it does their peers. The Faculty of Arts has a plan to make BA graduates career ready the moment they finish by embedding practical work experience into every Arts degree. 

Imagine the job prospects of an Arts graduate who not only has the communication, critical thinking and research skills inherent in a BA, but also has a year’s worth of volunteer experience with a non-profit organization, or work experience with a local business, or has launched and run their own small business.

With donor support, we can build these experiences into the Arts degree, transforming the student experience and giving Arts students a headstart on their career.
