Majors and popular combinations
Tailor your degree by exploring your career path or interest area in your first year, before selecting one or two majors in your second year. It's a unique feature of our course model and the best part is, it won't cost any extra or take longer to complete your degree.
Bachelor of Commerce
Real-world experiences are at the heart of the Bachelor of Commerce. This degree develops your analytical, communication and problem-solving skills, providing you with a global perspective on business.
Bachelor of Commerce (Honours)
Successfully completing an honours degree not only prepares you for higher-degree study at master’s and PhD level, but demonstrates to prospective employers a higher capacity for independent learning and research.
Bachelor of Philosophy (Honours)
The Bachelor of Philosophy (Honours) is an inspiring, holistic four-year degree comprising a three-year bachelor’s (chosen from UWA’s Arts, Biomedical Science, Commerce or Science degrees) and a fourth year of honours.
Become an expert in your chosen field by taking your skills and qualifications to new heights after completing your undergraduate degree. With a UWA postgraduate degree, you can learn from reputable thought leaders and build strong, life-long connections.
UWA provided access to truly top-class professors. Having the opportunity to work under the guidance of these professors means your foundational learning is in the best hands. That gave me confidence when I moved to the US to share ideas and viewpoints knowing that I have learned lessons from those at the top of their field.
I would say the confidence I built from graduating UWA is what helped me with further studies in the US, starting a business, and general communication skills with high-level people. Ben Meredith, Bachelor of Commerce '14
