Bachelor of IT / Bachelor of Arts (BIT/BA)
In this combined degree, students will be working towards two degrees. This normally takes seven years; by combining the degrees students will be able to complete the requirements for both in five years.
The IT/Arts combined degree is designed to meet the growing industry demand for elite graduates who master both the Information Technology (including Computer Science and Information Systems) and Arts disciplines. This degree allows students to obtain an Information Technology degree and further enhance their career options by adding skills from humanities, social sciences and languages. Students can complete one major and one minor study in Arts areas including linguistics, anthropology, cultural studies, film studies, digital culture or a language.
Our graduates will have the technical expertise to shape and manage current and emerging technology. Complemented with the lifelong communication, research and critical thinking skills that are acquired from an Arts degree, our graduates are well positioned to take on a career in a wide variety of fields. Some career options include IT careers in multi-national companies, careers in computational linguistics and media, consulting for companies, and professions which bridge the gap between Arts and IT.
HSC Mathematics or HSC Mathematics Extension 1. Other assumed knowledge depends on first-year subjects selected.
