Bachelor of Arts (Digital Technology and Culture)

There is no new intake for this degree.

4 years full time
5 years full time with Honours


The Bachelor of Arts (Digital Technology and Culture) (formerly Bachelor of Arts (Informatics)) is a specialist four-year degree that combines studies from the Faculty of Arts with others from the School of Information Technology in the Faculty of Science.

The degree was developed in recognition of likely employer demand from two main fields: information technology industries seeking people with the broad critical, analytical and communicative skills of arts graduates, and arts-related industries in need of technologically literate people capable of capitalising on the opportunities offered by new digital technologies.

By combining studies in humanities and social sciences with studies in information technology, the Bachelor of Arts (Digital Technology and Culture) revolutionises traditional approaches to the broad disciplines offered by arts and science.
