This program has broadened my horizon and has exposed me to a variety of perspectives. The biggest take away from this course is the ability to view situations from a wide spectrum of perspectives learnt over the course of this program. I liked the small size of the classes and the seminar style lectures which ASAS provides. I choose ASAS over the many other education providers mainly due to the flexibility of its courses as well as wide variety of electives it offered. The opportunity to customize modules to fit my individual interests and needs was also greatly appreciated.
Students must complete 8 subjects each year which include the 3 Core subjects and choose 13 subjects from the list of Electives. For the List of subjects for Advanced Diploma of Arts click here.
