Course code: C3D
The 5-year full-time combined degree of Bachelor of Commerce, Bachelor of Applied Computing is offered on the Launceston campus by the Faculty of Commerce & Economics and the Faculty of Science & Technology.

Admission requirements & prerequisites
Possession of the University's minimum entry requirements including in the case of Tasmanian school-leavers TCE MT730 Mathematics Applied.

Course objectives
The objectives of the combined degrees are:
* to provide students with a solid foundation of the technical and professional body of know-ledge of accounting, management, information systems, computer science and related subjects;
* to develop students' abilities to communicate, and to use computer-based technology to analyse critically the way in which information is traditionally recorded and reported;
* to give students the opportunity to combine skills in computing technology and commerce related subjects in order to focus on how to improve systems for developing and presenting information that is used for decision making.

Course structure
To qualify for the combined degrees students must satisfy the compulsory requirements for the Bachelor of Commerce and the Bachelor of Applied Computing. In each course students undertake a core of required units, and a major and electives. Commerce majors may be selected from Management, Accounting, Marketing and International Business.

The structure of the course is summarised in the following table shown as Sample Course Structure and specified in the schedules of the two courses, as contained in the relevant faculty sections of this handbook. It should be noted that the course structure and rules of the two degrees are sufficiently flexible that students with appropriate counselling could, as an alternative program to that shown, select to undertake core units in either Commerce or Applied Computing in Year 1 followed by parallel development in both courses. Refer also to the BCom and BAppComp degree specifications which are printed in full in the Rules Handbook.

Articulation with other courses
Students who have completed the Associate Diploma of Business and have been admitted to the course will receive one year of credit in Commerce or Computing respectively.
