    Bachelor of Arts - Bachelor of Laws

    A highlight of this degree is that I can network with people in many different faculties. With Law, I can dive deeper and learn more about my passion for helping people through the legal profession, while my Arts degree majoring in Indigenous Studies allows me to understand the complexities of Indigenous cultures.

    The flexibility of a Bachelor of Arts - Bachelor of Laws degree at JCU ensures that you can complete two degrees while expanding your knowledge on topics that are of interest to you. Studying two degrees will give you a clearer idea on what you are passionate about and what you want to do at the end of your studies.

    Bachelor of Arts - Bachelor of Laws

    Doing a JCU double degree helped tremendously when I was going for job interviews and subsequently in all the different roles I’ve had. You learn critical thinking, how to crystalise massive amounts of research into a few succinct points and then make a case, persuade others and build momentum around ideas.

    The benefit of studying at JCU is that there are smaller classes compared to other universities. If students need help, it is very easy to get access to their teaching staff. And for students who are living further away, with online study they can still come to JCU and study many of our courses.
