Reasons to study at Campion
Australia’s standout institution for Western Civilisation studies
According to a recent study by the Institute of Public Affairs, just three universities in Australia offer courses which cover all the essential topics of the history of Western Civilisation, with Campion College the standout.
Learn how to think, not what to think
Campion’s degree teaches students how to think critically, articulate arguments and communicate effectively, skills that are increasingly sought after by employers and will give you an edge over your peers.
Small class sizes
Classes at Campion College are small and conducted in a way that emphasises discussion and heightens participation. Students and lecturers cooperate actively in the pursuit of truth. Many universities have over 700 students in first year lectures; Campion delivers its lectures to much smaller numbers, in addition to capping tutorials at 15, which allows for an interactive style of teaching and learning.
Campion’s program of study is integrated. In other words, lecturers teach a curriculum that is designed so that each unit complements and flows into the others. No other Arts degree in Australia emphasises the virtue of integration between disciplines to this extent.
