About studying IT
Combined degree programs
Combined degrees allow students to add another area of study to the technology-based IT degrees. By adding a second qualification students broaden their career opportunities. Studies for both degrees are fully integrated.
The School of Information Technologies offers the following combined degrees.
Bachelor of Information Technology / Bachelor of Arts
In this combined degree students study IT whilst adding skills from humanities, social sciences and languages. In addition to an IT stream (computer science or information systems), students can complete one major and one minor study in arts areas of study, for example linguistics, anthropology, cultural studies, film studies, digital culture or a language.
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, graduates from the Bachelor of Information Technology/Bachelor of Arts (BIT/BA) will be well positioned to take on a career in a wide variety of fields.

Bachelor of Information Technology / Bachelor of Commerce
In this combined degree students undertake one major from the Faculty of Economics and Business (for e.g., accounting, finance, economics) and a stream from IT. Students will learn skills and vocabulary from both disciplines and have the opportunity to practise their combined skills in project-based courses and through industry internships.
Graduates have exceptional skills in both IT and business which help shape them into the future business leaders and entrepreneurs.

Bachelor of Information Technology / Bachelor of Laws
The Bachelor of Information Technology/Bachelor of Laws (BIT/LLB) is a 6-year award course. The degree will produce graduates who have an extensive technical understanding of both IT and Law.
Graduates will be well-equipped to tackle legal issues that have become more prevalent as technology has progressed, such as copyright, privacy, data collection, and censorship and can help shape policy in these areas. Similarly, IT professionals can benefit greatly from a working knowledge of law when dealing with contracts, patents, share holders or working in international markets.
Bridging the gap between these two domains will be vital in the future, and graduates from this combined degree will be highly sought after in both professions.

Bachelor of Information Technology / Bachelor of Medical Science
This combined degree provides students with a structured program of study, adding skills from medical science, biomedicine, and bioinformatics to their IT degree. All students undertake core units in areas including computer science, information systems, and selected medical science areas.
The demand for graduates qualified in IT and medical science is expected to soar as medical science research becomes increasingly dependent on IT.

Bachelor of Information Technology / Bachelor of Science
There is a natural synergy between IT and science: all areas of science have made significant advancements using IT. In this combined degree students undertake core units in areas including computer science, information systems, and selected science areas such as mathematics, physics, biology, chemistry, geography or psychology.
The degree will produce graduates who can meet a strong need from industry, for employees who have both extensive technical understanding of IT and essential skills in one or two science areas. Bachelor of Information Technology/Bachelor of Science (BIT/BSc) graduates can ideally look forward to a wide range of career options in both IT and science.
