Description

The Bachelor of Arts is a general, flexible degree which allows students to match academic interests with career aspirations to create a personalised course progression. Studying humanities will develop general knowledge and specific intellectual skills relating to human thought and relations, such as the way we communicate or how the past has affected the present. Social science analyses and explains societies and the relationships of individuals within those societies.

The Bachelor of Business (Accounting) component of this double degree is designed to enable graduates to pursue careers in professional accounting and a wide range of business fields. The business component blends a conceptual framework with practical applications and covers basic discipline material through to more specialised accounting strand requirements.
