Why study this course?
UWA is the only university in Western Australia that affords undergraduate students the opportunity to undertake a full program of study in human rights. Combining this with the Arts will equip you to think holistically, developing an enhanced awareness of relationships – with oneself, others and the world. You will graduate with two qualifications, having cut two years off the time it takes you to study two degrees. If you decide either degree isn't right for you, you can exit one and complete the other.
