Bachelor of Laws (Honours) and Bachelor of Arts
While either Law or Arts can be a fine start to your career, you can enhance your options and professional expertise by combining them in this sought-after double degree course.
Tailored to your interests and career aspirations, a feature of our Law course is a large number of specialist units available. Coupled with some 40 Arts majors and minors, you can blend your study of Law with subjects such as bioethics, criminology, international relations, holocaust or genocide studies, or indulge your passion for the performing arts, language, music or theatre. The choice is yours.
This course leads to two separate degrees:
- the Bachelor of Laws (Honours), and
- the Bachelor of Arts.
You will gain all the benefits of each degree course (see Bachelor of Laws (Honours)/Bachelor of Arts) and be fully equipped to pursue a career in either field separately or to combine the two in your chosen work.
Graduates with these two degrees will have a solid foundation in the concepts, procedures and reasoning underpinning the Australian legal system and the research, analytical, and communication skills of the legal profession. In Arts, they will have been challenged to think critically and creatively, to resist easy answers or simplistic solutions and to develop an ethical and intellectual framework within which to understand what it means to be human, and how this changes over time. Taken together with the opportunities to study overseas and undertake work-based projects, it's a dynamic combination.
Clayton campus has around 26,000 students and is the largest of all eight campuses. It is located 20km south-east of Melbourne.
