Combining the Bachelor of Arts and the Bachelor of Science allows you to follow diverse passions to create something unique. Through the science component you will be inspired to build new knowledge and discover new things. Through the study of arts, you will explore ideas, theories and records of how people process the human experience through society, culture, and more.
This combined degree will teach you to think both scientifically and socially about the world and how it works. It offers a greater breadth of learning, enhancing the academic and professional qualities gained in each separate degree. On completion, you will have the practical skills to make a difference in the world and to contribute to new solutions to the many challenges we face.
There are core courses and a major sequence from both degrees that must be undertaken. For additional information about this degree, refer to 482010 Bachelor of Arts and 484020 Bachelor of Science.
