Bachelors of Economics / Arts

Combine specialised economics training with study in a wide range of arts disciplines in this dual degree program.

This dual degree program provides the opportunity to combine the understanding of power, opportunity and society that an economics degree offers with a respected arts qualification that allows you to discover your passion.

When you graduate, you'll be in high demand. Being an arts graduate sets you apart and makes you a desirable job candidate, and an economics degree can lead to a role as an analyst, adviser, consultant or researcher in a huge range of industries.

When this program is studied at a standard load of four courses per semester, the final semester will comprise part-time study of only two courses. Students may decide to overload in previous semesters or undertake study in a summer semester to reduce the total duration of the program.

Program highlights

  • Learn how to question, analyse, model and predict human behaviour.
  • Explore key economic principles, theories and tools, and study topics like microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics.
  • Tailor your arts studies to suit your passions, from classics and languages to world cultures and politics.
  • Harness the knowledge to engage in a globalised world and contribute to solving its challenges.
