About the courseThe aim of the Bachelor of Arts with Honours (BA(Hons)) is to help students become highly skilled, versatile, independent thinkers with the research experience, information literacy, communication and interpersonal skills necessary for an advanced professional career or further academic study at the Masters or PhD level. Computer Science is the study of computers and the work they do. We need a science of computers because, unlike other machines, computers are general purpose, the same machine can perform many different tasks and the same tasks can be done equally well by different computers.Today computers are used not only as a tool in commerce and science, but also for research in many disciplines, such as Anthropology and Linguistics. Computer Science can be taken as a major for both the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees and can also be included as a supporting subject in a Bachelor of Commerce degree. Some knowledge of computing is useful to all science students and many arts and business students even if you do not intend to major in Computer Science.
