Our graduates have successful careers in the fields of media, journalism, education, marketing, public relations, publishing, editing, advertising, development work, information technology, library and archival work, translation, religious ministry, writing and consultancy.
The first year of undergraduate study for an Arts and Humanities degree offers a broad grounding in at least four subjects, improving students’ general knowledge and developing important thinking, communication, study and information technology skills. In the second and third year of the BA and BTh there is greater focus on the specific subjects which make up the majors of the degrees. The BBibl is a four-year programme, incorporating large parts of the BA curriculum. The courses of study in all subjects offer training which is of international standard, but which remains engaged with the specifics of our society. The combination of broad critical skills and knowledge with particular subject training is in high demand within the job market. Our undergraduate degrees also offer an excellent foundation for further study.
After the Bachelor’s degree, Arts offers an exciting range of postgraduate options at Honours, Master's and Doctoral levels. The Faculty is one of the leading producers of research at UWC; is home to many internationally recognised researchers and has partnerships with universities and institutions elsewhere in Africa and further afield.
We invite you to study in one of the most dynamic faculties in South Africa.

This is the first of its kind in South Africa and on the African continent. Forensic Linguistics is a relatively new field of study in South Africa, though it is quite well established in places like the USA, UK and Australia.
