Overview

Course Overview

The Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Business dual degree course is designed for students whose career aspirations may be best served by combining a multidisciplinary degree course providing opportunities to pursue studies in the broad discipline areas of humanities and the social sciences, with a professional business course.

Literary Studies students will be able to demonstrate advanced reading and writing skills; to apply critical thinking and advanced modes of textual analysis to a broad range of texts, genres and media; to communicate using cogent, discipline-based and context-relevant research; and to participate, both self-reflexively and ethically, in discipline critical debates.
