Bachelor of Business and Commerce / Bachelor of Science

University of Southern Queensland USQ

This program focuses on sciences in a business and commerce context and allows students to major in one area of Science and one area of Business and Commerce. The skills developed in the Bachelor of Business and Commerce will complement the expertise gained in the Bachelor of Science and will allow students to become capable of making sound decisions while practising in their chosen scientific field. When graduating with a double degree, students will receive a separate testamur (official certificate) for each degree and will be able to complete the double degree in less time than if they chose to study the two degrees separately.
