Commerce is viewed as the foundation of society – without law there would be chaos, without economics societies and governments could not properly function, and without business very few people would have a livelihood. This subject area aims to provide students with the content and skills to develop a career in various fields, such as Law, Accounting, Business, Economics and Administration, along with the basis for further study in these areas. Studying Commerce gives students opportunities to experience these industries from the classroom, while also providing the foundation to become more active members of the community.
