Double degrees that will give you the employment edge
Double degrees are more popular and available than ever. The best thing about a double degree is that it gives you the opportunity to explore and specialise in two areas. Interestingly, you might even start to notice that some courses are only being offered as part of a double degree and universities are promoting these courses more strongly than ever. So what are some of the double degrees that are likely to make you more employable? Here are just a few of the possible options that are out there.
Bachelor of Laws with a Bachelor of Information Technology
You can combine Law with just about any degree. The combinations are endless from being paired with economics and finance, through to science and international studies. Law is one of the most popular degrees for students today and having a double degree with information technology would be a powerful combination in today’s technology-rich world.
Bachelor of Biomedical Science with a Bachelor of Business
It can be difficult to pair biomedical science with many other degrees, but given the huge amount of advances taking place in biomedical technology right now and the diversity of startups growing in this space this style of double degree could be a great fit for you if you are interested in innovating or supporting innovation in the biomedical space.
Bachelor of Computer Science with a Bachelor of Engineering
If you are great with computers and are looking to be a step above the rest when you graduate pairing computer science with engineering will give you a strong set of foundations valuable to a diverse range of employers. Whether you want to work in engineering technology, design, modern computing advances or mechatronics this degree will set you up for success.
Bachelor of Information Systems with a Bachelor of Commerce
When people think of following their passion for computers and technology they often think only of IT. Fewer people think of information systems, but studying this area will help you to develop a highly valuable set of skills. Information Systems is all about the study of computer hardware, software and telecommunications networks that people build and use to collect, create, and distribute useful data in an organisation. Studying this subject will give you a strong grounding in how technology is integrated throughout entire organisations.
Now imagine you pair this with a degree in commerce, where you will be building a wide range of managerial skills in areas like accounting, finance, business management, human resources, marketing, and economics. This double degree would make you a strong asset to a company, especially when paired with some professional experience.
Bachelor of Arts with a Bachelor of Education
There is a current growing need for more teachers in Australia and the ever expanding curriculum particularly within the humanities is likely to provide new and exciting opportunities for teachers with a range of arts specialities.
