Bachelor of Applied Science/Bachelor of Arts

About the Course
This combined degree provides students with the generic skills and understanding of humanities and social sciences in conjunction with applied science.


The Arts course includes specialist pathways of study in History and Cultural Heritage, in Social Science (Psychology and Sociology), in Regional and International Studies (including Southeast Asian Studies), Languages and in Indigenous Knowledge (Yolngu Culture). Combinations of these specialist areas of study provide graduates with distinctive qualifications that lead to interesting and rewarding careers. The course builds on the University┐s unique location in northern Australia, adjacent to Southeast Asia. Employment opportunities include Federal, State and Territory government, land councils, museums, non-government agencies and the corporate sector, particularly where these organisations engage with Central and Northern Australia and Asia.


The Applied Science course enables students to tailor their science degree to their own areas of interest and career aspirations. The course offers flexibility and diversity by enabling students to study in different areas of science offered in the School of Science and Primary Industries, as well as allowing students to integrate studies from a variety of areas outside of traditional science disciplines into their science degree.



Graduates are equipped to demonstrate and apply an understanding of their chosen areas of science, including concepts, theories and principles to practice in real situations. Students also become effective problem solvers able to think globally, apply logical and critical thinking, and to apply an understanding of scientific and technological factors and to consider issues from various cultural, economic and other societal perspectives.


The Bachelor of Science (Honours) is available for entry to suitable candidates with a Bachelor of Applied Science.


Graduates of this combined degree are awarded both the Bachelor of Applied Science and the Bachelor of Arts.
