Summary

Expand your horizons by combining your passion for the arts with a computer science degree, and open up exciting opportunities in the computing and technology sectors and beyond.

This dual program allows you to satisfy your logical, technical, creative and curious sides all at once, as you develop deep knowledge in computer science and broad transferable skill sets through your study in arts.

Your studies in computer science will combine the theory of algorithms and data structures with the practical challenges of implementing them in hardware and software systems. Skills learnt in this program are used in fields ranging from bioinformatics to digital humanities, where sophisticated knowledge in programming and data analysis are used to manipulate massive data sets.

The Bachelor of Arts component allows you to choose from a wide variety of majors to either complement your computer science studies or your knowledge in another field, which can help you find a future role in a related industry. The broad skill set you develop through the program will help you apply your computing knowledge and skills outside of the technology sector.

You'll graduate as a candidate who combines excellent technical skills, critical thinking and problem-solving abilities with polished communication skills and honed creativity.
