Business and Arts - B2019

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.
