Why should you do the Bachelor of Advanced Studies?

The Bachelor of Advanced Studies is a combined degree which is taken in combination with another three year liberal or specialist degree. This means that you will study for one additional year and graduate with two degrees. For example, if you are interested in History and Data Science, you may choose to major in these two areas within the Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Advanced Studies course.

By studying the combined Bachelor of Advanced Studies, you will have the opportunity to:

  • design your own degree by combining units of study from a range of disciplines
  • complete advanced coursework modules to build on your expertise as well as strengthen your entrepreneurial and leadership skills
  • work on real-world industry, community and research challenges across disciplines to solve problems
  • complete a second major or apply to study a traditional fourth year Honours program.
