Double Majors. Double The Advantage. An exciting line-up of over 250 Double Majors for you to choose from.

5 Major Reasons Why
a Double Major Degree
Benefits You

  1. Wider career opportunities,
    better employability

    New research has shown that Double Majors scored 17.4% more on the innovation scale than the average student, attributed to the fact that your understanding and knowledge are enhanced with two complementary fields.

    Choosing a Double Major expands your prospects with multiple career paths, giving you more options.

  2. Expand your skill sets

    Taking a Double Major offers you the combined skills from two disciplines, allowing you to complement your skill sets in unique ways, yielding unique insights and experiences that are invaluable for your career.

    For instance, a Double Major in Human Resource and Psychology equips you with the capabilities and know-how of people management from an organisational perspective, supplemented by Psychology in its understanding of human behaviour.

  3. Boost your credentials

    Prospective employers will take notice of candidates who have attained Double Majors, as such candidates appear to be self-disciplined, adaptable and resilient.

    Marlene McCauley, associate academic dean at Guilford College in Greensboro, N.C. espoused the virtue of students who took Double Majors by stating that: "With double majors, students are saying, 'I am interested in viewing the world through more than one set of lenses.'"

  4. Competitive advantage over your peers

    The study of two disciplines will give you broader perspectives with the benefit of exposure to complementary subject matters and diverse groups of people. These can help you to build your communications skills and knowledge, and develop an open mind, key skills sought by most employers in the workforce. In addition, achieving a Double Major Degree demonstrates to employers that you have the tenacity and are better equipped to handle the job, granting you a competitive edge.

    In addition, Murdoch University offers a timely Double Major Degree programme that can be completed in 16 months instead of 28 months, subject to university’s approval.

  5. Better salary prospects

    Mastery in two different fields is no small feat, requiring substantial dedication of your time and effort.

    Though you may have to sacrifice some leisure time to get the schoolwork done, research has shown that a Double Major Degree holder earns more on average over their peers over time, allowing your hard work to pay greater dividends.

The collective expertise of Murdoch University Singapore Office’s teaching staff, comprising both industry experts and academics with PhD qualifications, allows students to gain practical learning and critical thinking skills.

Technology-integrated learning refers to a study experience in which students achieve a given set of learning outcomes by interacting in more than one medium.

This approach involves the meaningful and balanced use of digital media such as recorded lectures, podcasts, text or graphics with other elements such as a video or quiz, and may even encompass active learning methods such as student-generated blogs, where appropriate.

With technology-integrated learning, students will not only reap the benefits of face-to-face guidance and collaboration but also – in carrying out some of their learning online – benefit from added flexibility and control over the time, place, path and pace of learning.
