Caleb Sampson

Caleb is studying for a Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Fine Arts conjoint majoring in English.

“Being a student in the Faculty of Arts is great. I love the fact that you can do your major, but also do courses that just interest you outside of that. Alongside my English major I am also doing courses in Art History, Classics, Philosophy and Theology. The scope of what was available at the University of Auckland impressed me and the flexibility of the Bachelor of Arts programme also proved a huge plus.

"There’s a huge range to do what you want and follow your own interest and curiosity. A lot of the ideas I learned in subjects outside my major are complimentary to it. I am not 100% sure on what career I would like to pursue once I graduate, and that’s great! There are so many opportunities available that I didn’t even know existed a year ago. I’m confident the degree I get at the end of my study will stand me in good stead for whichever path I end up taking.”
