Course sub-headings

Course overview

This double degree lets you combine complementary arts and science major sequences. Studying arts provides students with highly-developed critical-thinking skills, while undertaking units in science prepares students for work in areas such as biology, environmental policy, and industrial development.

Successful graduates of this course receive two degrees and a competitive advantage over those with a single only one degree.

Cloud (online) studies

Deakin offers many courses which can be studied by distance education overseas.

However, international students living in Australia must, in each compulsory trimester (that is, Trimesters 1 and 2), enrol in at least one unit that is offered as a Campus located unit and can, in addition enrol in units offered via Cloud (online). International students are not permitted to do more than 25% of their total course via Cloud (online) learning. Best practice is to enrol in mostly Campus located units in each compulsory trimester.

In a non-compulsory trimester (Trimester 3), international students may study Cloud (online) units only.

Fees and charges

Fees and charges vary depending on your course, your fee category and the year you started. To find out about the fees and charges that apply to you, visit www.deakin.edu.au/fees.
