Double degrees

Double the skills. Double the opportunities.

Take the right step towards a career without limitations by studying a double degree at Deakin.

Double degrees – your career advantage

Where will you be in 15 years’ time? For many, that’s a hard question to answer. As you go through different life experiences, it’s only natural for your interests to change. With a double degree at Deakin, you’ll graduate with a much broader set of technical and transferable skills. This sets you up for a career that’s ready to evolve as your passions do.

Better still, a double degree allows you to learn more about what you love. Why sacrifice one pursuit when you can study two fields of interest? By satisfying your thirst for knowledge in both areas, you can graduate more fulfilled and confident about the future.

Boost your prospects

Graduate with skills and experience employers want. Times two. Gain a broader perspective of both disciplines and learn how to combine skills from each degree to unlock new and varied career pathways.

Year 12 support

I completed three majors and one minor, which was possible because of the flexibility of a double degree and enabled me to explore complementary aspects of my learning.

Frequently asked questions

How does a double degree work?

A double degree, sometimes referred to as a combined degree, allows you to study two degrees at the same time. A double degree doesn’t increase your workload. Each trimester, you’ll study the same number of units as you would in a single degree while enjoying the diverse mix of study topics that come with a double degree. When you graduate, you’ll receive two certificates for each of the degrees you’ve completed.

How much does a double degree cost?

A double degree can significantly reduce the cost of study when compared with studying each degree separately. Visit course pages you’re interested in for specific information on course fees.

How long does it take to complete a double degree?

By focusing more on core units and less on elective units, a double degree can significantly reduce the duration of study when compared with studying each degree separately. In many cases, you can graduate with a second degree in as little as one extra year of study.

For example, if you completed the Bachelor of Health Sciences and Bachelor of Arts separately, it would take you six years of full-time study (three years for each degree). By studying the Bachelor of Health Sciences/Bachelor of Arts double degree, you can graduate with the same two qualifications in just four years of full-time study. Visit course pages you’re interested in for specific information on course duration.
