Business and Arts

Bachelor degree/Bachelor degree

Business and Arts is a great combination. By studying the two together you are opening up a world of opportunity. Business and Arts enables you to study complementary subjects to further enhance your employability, and develop core business skills that can be used in artistic arenas. It's also a great combination if you haven't decided on a career direction yet, because it gives you the best of both worlds

With this double degree course, you'll have genuine diversity of choice, with more than 50 majors and minors on offer. And your options are only as limited as your imagination.

This course leads to two separate degrees:

  • the Bachelor of Business, and
  • the Bachelor of Arts.

You will gain all the benefits of each degree course and be fully equipped to pursue a career in either field separately or to combine the two in your chosen work.

Your career options will depend on the combination of majors and minors that you choose, and will open up a diverse range of opportunities.

Combine Criminology and Accounting to give you the skills to pursue a career as a forensic investigator; mix Psychology and Human Resource Management to pursue a business career that focuses on understanding how people think; or group Business Law and Theatre Studies to give you an edge in the film and entertainment industries.

Wherever your choices may lead, a degree in Business and another in Arts will give you versatile and transferable skills that are relevant to any industry. The combination will also give you the skills that employers are looking for, such as communication, teamwork, research, critical thinking and cultural sensitivity - and you'll be able to draw on cross disciplinary perspectives to thrive in a broad range of settings.

Course Structure

Double degree courses allow you to study towards two different degrees at the same time, and graduate with two separate qualifications. And because a required subject in one course can count as an elective in the other, our double degrees take two years less than if you studied for the two degrees separately.

The Bachelor of Business is a comprehensive course, structured in three equal parts. In the double degree course you complete.

A. Business specified study

This will provide you with a broad foundation for your study of business and expose you to several business disciplines. It will contribute breadth to your knowledge of business and develop your understanding of multi-disciplinary decision making in organisations. It will also give you the opportunity to learn more about each discipline before finalising your choice of major.

B. Business listed major

This will provide you with a focused program of study that will develop your expertise in one discipline area. You will develop, apply and communicate an advanced level of understanding of the concepts and theoretical frameworks that constitute the knowledge base of your major area of study.

The Bachelor of Arts is a comprehensive course, structured in three equal parts. In the double degree course you complete

A. Arts specified study

This will expose you to several Arts disciplines areas of study contributing breadth to your knowledge of the arts, humanities and social sciences. It will also give you the opportunity to learn about several areas of study before finalising your choice of major and minor.

B. Arts listed major
