Course overview

The Bachelor of Arts and Science is specifically designed for students who recognise that the arts and science have a lot to offer each other. The course provides you with the broadest range of disciplinary and interdisciplinary studies from across the University.

The Bachelor of Arts and Science has core units that provide a link between the humanities and science fields. As a student, you have the flexibility to choose majors from both faculties and to tailor a program to your individual interests and career goals. This course brings together the two cultures and provides you with adaptable and analytical skills, including the ability to think creatively and solve problems.

Majors can be taken from education, humanities, law, science, mathematics, engineering, computing and social and behavioural sciences. This enables you to gain a sound understanding and knowledge of both an arts and science discipline. A variety of work-integrated learning activities provide you with the skills and experiences to prepare you for your career.

From science areas, you will learn about methods for testing hypotheses, and interpreting data and drawing conclusions. From arts, you will learn about developing and communicating arguments, and about understanding, moving and persuading a range of different audiences.

The Bachelor of Arts and Science combines the curriculum from both areas and accommodates the growing global trend of joining the arts and science areas.
