Bachelor of Arts / Bachelor of Laws

Five years full-time

This combined degree is an excellent academic foundation if you are planning a legal career with a humanities focus, such as human rights law. It is a solid undergraduate degree that can open many further study opportunities and professional pathways.

The first three years are spent studying a combination of subjects from the Arts and Law faculties. You have the same flexibility to shape your arts and social sciences studies as if you were undertaking a single degree, but this is combined with foundation units in law. Years four and five are then spent completing the Bachelor of Laws at the Sydney Law School.
