The Bachelor of Arts is a general, flexible degree which allows students to match academic interests with career aspirations to create a personalised course progression. Studying humanities will develop general knowledge and specific intellectual skills relating to human thought and relations, such as the way we communicate or how the past has affected the present. Social science analyses and explains societies and the relationships of individuals within those societies.
This double-degree program provides a professional education in the disciplines of economics or econometrics and business statistics, with a strong emphasis on developing analytical skills. The course enables students to include in their studies a range of social science and humanities disciplines.
This course provides students with a broad understanding of economics combined with the broad teaching and learning objectives of the Bachelor of Arts degree.
Refer to the Bachelor of Arts objectives at http://www.monash.edu.au/pubs/handbooks/courses/0002.html and Bachelor of Business Economics objectives at http://www.monash.edu.au/pubs/handbooks/courses/0023.html.
