About this course

The dual degree provides students with an understanding of the business environment and its relevance to the international hotel and tourism industry. This training is complemented by the studies of society and culture and analytical and communication skills offered 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

Sports studies provides students with an understanding of the sport and leisure industries from sociological, historical, economic and psychological perspectives. Students will undertake courses in the social science and humanities areas of the study of sport as well as courses relating to the sociology of sport and the human body in society. The growth in the sport, physical activity and health industries over the past two decades has created a range of employment opportunities in the areas of social policy, journalism, management, marketing, planning and development, education, and psychology. Sports Studies graduates currently hold leadership positions with State and national sporting teams, the media and international sporting organisations.
