At the School of Arts we believe in creating opportunities for our students, rather than limiting their potential. With a Murdoch Arts degree, you can choose to major in two separate subject areas rather than just one, all in the same three year degree. By simply utilising your electives to build an entire second major, you have the opportunity to graduate with a Bachelor of Arts with two distinct specialisations.
Simply, double majors means you get two major skill sets for the price of one, for no extra money, with no extra time and you double your chance at getting a job when you graduate.
