Why study the Bachelors of Economics/Arts?

The dual degree program allows students the opportunity of combining their specialised Economics training with study in a wide range of discipline areas in the Bachelor of Arts.

When this program is studied at a standard load of four courses per semester, the final semester will comprise part-time study of only two courses. Students may decide to overload in previous semesters or undertake study in a summer semester to reduce the total duration of the program.
