Accredited Courses

University courses

ASA accredits higher education courses in archives and recordkeeping including bachelor degrees, graduate diplomas, and masters degrees.

Courses at each university have different titles usually reflecting a different focus. Typically archives and recordkeeping subjects are part of a specialisation or stream within a broader course.

The prerequisite for entry to post graduate courses is a university degree in any subject. Some universities will accept students without a first degree, if they can show suitable equivalent qualifications and/or experience.
