The Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Science offers students a general understanding of contemporary social and cultural developments through a range of study areas, as well as a capacity to understand complex scientific information in a specialised field.
You'll develop a range of key humanities and scientific skills and knowledge related to current and projected industry needs.
Drawing on the expertise of leading teachers, researchers and industry experts, the course allows you to design a degree to develop a unique range of interdisciplinary skills.
Work Integrated Learning is a guaranteed part of all our bachelor degrees. This double degree has two units where you’ll have the opportunity to work on industry-linked projects.

As part of my degree, I participated in two panels at the PAX Gaming Festival. Using my presentation skills, I gained from my arts classes, I presented the history of video games in certain parts of the world.
