Develop strong verbal and written communication skills to create policy needed to protect human rights, social equity and security now and in the future.

In this multi-disciplinary, you’ll learn about philosophy, sociology, and politics.

With a Bachelor of Arts/ Bachelor of Science combine a science specialisation with a deep understanding of the world for a broad scope of exciting careers.

With this combination of degrees, you’ll equip yourself with the skills required to work in a range of professional scientific environments and grow your knowledge as you unpack what drives social change in contemporary society.

Whether you’re passionate about climate change, social justice or how to protect our rights in an evolving tech rich world – with your arts degree, you’ll strengthen your analytical thinking by tackling crucial global problems with majors such as Climate and Social Justice or Ethics and Technology, that go hand in hand with science specialisations such as Biochemistry, Biotechnology and Environmental Science.

You’ll graduate ready for exciting career prospects across a range of industries - as well as the confidence to stand up and make the difference our world needs to survive.

Work Integrated Learning is a guaranteed part of all our bachelor degrees. This double degree has four units where you’ll have Work Integrated Learning opportunities. You'll apply your learning in three project units related to science in professionally focused, industry-linked projects throughout your degree. In your second year, in the Skills and Strategies for Social Change core arts unit, you'll collaborate with fellow students and community, civil society and industry partners to create real campaigns for real social change.
