Bachelor and diploma courses in
At Campion College, students explore the rich tapestry of Western history and culture through Bachelor and Diploma courses in the liberal arts.
Our undergraduate program provides students with a well-rounded education, emphasising critical thinking, effective communication and the pursuit of knowledge for its own sake. By studying authors, historical figures, theologians and philosophers such as Shakespeare, St. Augustine, Plato and others, our students gain a deeper understanding of themselves and the world around them, and develop essential ‘soft skills’ that are highly valued by employers across industries.
We believe that studying the ideas, events, personalities and works that have shaped Western history and culture has a profound impact on personal and professional development of students. At Campion, we offer a range of units in history, literature, philosophy, theology, science and classical languages that allow students to delve deep into the intellectual and cultural traditions of the West and to gain a greater appreciation for its diversity and complexity. Our graduates are well-prepared for a wide range of career opportunities, from law and journalism to education and beyond, and are equipped with the skills and knowledge to succeed in any field they choose.
Whether you’re a high school student interested in pursuing a broad program of tertiary study or a recent high school graduate seeking to broaden your horizons, Campion’s liberal arts program is the perfect choice for those who value a well-rounded education, the lifelong pursuit of knowledge and a foundation for success in all spheres of life.
