Program Aims

The Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Business (Specialisation) double degree program is designed for students whose career aspirations may be best served by combining a multidisciplinary degree program providing opportunities to pursue studies in the broad discipline areas of humanities and the social sciences, with a broadly-based rather than a discipline specific professional business program. (See the CQU Glossary for definition of a double degree, available from http://glossary.cqu.edu.au/.)

Students will be able to combine social science and humanities disciplines in their core studies and the flexible structure of the Bachelor of Arts component will give graduates broader perspectives on the contemporary world and develop their critical, analytical and problem-solving skills. Students will also be able to undertake studies across a range of business and other related disciplines. This approach will suit students who believe that they will be better served in their careers by acquiring an understanding of a wide range of business areas and operations, rather than specialising in a single business area or function.

Program Structure

To satisfy the requirements for the award, students must complete a program of 32 courses which comply with the requirements stated below:

Students must complete:

  • 2 plans (12 courses) from the core study plans of the Bachelor of Arts (see separate Handbook entry for the Bachelor of Arts)
