Commerce and Arts - B2020

Commerce and Arts

Bachelor degree/Bachelor degree

A double degree course in Commerce and Arts gives you the skills to commercialise artistic endeavours, or apply commercial knowledge across different industry sectors.

You'll have genuine diversity of choice, with more than 40 majors and minors on offer. And your options are only as limited as your imagination. Combine Economics and Politics or Philosophy as a great launching pad for a political career; or Marketing Science and Psychology to understand why people buy certain products; or group Management Studies and Music to have the skills or manage a band or work for a record label.

This course leads to two separate degrees:

  • the Bachelor of Commerce, 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 or minors that you choose, and will open up a diverse range of opportunities. Our graduates can be found in a range of commercial roles within creative companies or corporations. They are also working across international relations or trade, politics and government, environmental research and planning, the media, arts, advertising, health or have launched their own companies.

Wherever your choices may lead, a degree in Commerce 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.

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.
