Overview

The Bachelor of Languages and Cultures offers students studies in languages other than English, culture and society focused on developing their intercultural and linguistic capabilities. It also offers a capstone subject that allows students to design and carry out a small-scale research project that requires them to apply their linguistic skills and cultural knowledge.

The combined Bachelor of Science in Analytics Bachelor of Languages and Cultures provides students with intercultural and linguistic skills that raise their awareness of the international implications of science in analytics. Students develop an understanding and awareness of a language other than English languages and another culture and refine their intercultural skills. Students also develop their professional skills in writing, research and evaluation.

Career options

Career options include data scientist and business analyst roles in consumer analytics and marketing research, logistics management, credit risk management, stock market analysis, providing advice on portfolio management, option pricing, prediction of movements in international money markets and financial risk management. Major employers of graduates include media and marketing companies, professional services and consulting firms, banks, insurance companies, superannuation providers, government regulatory bodies such as APRA and ASIC, and other major financial bodies.
