Bachelor of Arts / Bachelor of Business and Commerce

University of Southern Queensland USQ

This dynamic USQ double degree will place students business studies within a context that will give them a wider perspective through targeted study in the Humanities, preparing them for a unique career. Students can choose between 35 majors in areas such as Accounting, Legal Studies, Human Resource Management, Creative and Critical Writing, Economics, Marketing, Anthropology, or Tourism. If students are not sure which field they'd like to specialise in, don't worry. Within their first year of study they'll undertake a variety of courses to discover their areas of interest. Studying a double degree takes less time than doing the programs separately, saves time and money, puts graduates in a competitive position to excel in the workplace and students graduate with two testamurs (official certificates) for each of their degrees.
