Diversify your career prospects and study a double degree at USQ.

A double degree allows you to broaden your education and develop an interdisciplinary field of knowledge in less time than if you were to complete two separate degrees.

Our double degrees give you plenty of flexibility in choosing majors to shape your studies to your desired outcome. Improve your transferrable skillset which can be applied to several industries and sectors.

Completing a double degree means you receive two testamurs (official certificates) – one for each of the degrees you complete when you graduate. 

We also offer combined degrees. Completion of a combined degree offers you a single testamur but allows you to combine studies in two different areas and give you a competitive edge.

Double degrees

  • This dynamic USQ double degree combines your business studies with experience in specialised fields like International Relations, Advertising or Social Justice, enabling you to build networks, make contacts and improve your employment options.
  • If you’re not sure which field you’d like to specialise in, don’t worry. Within your first year of study you’ll undertake a variety of courses to discover your areas of interest.
  • A double degree of Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Laws gives you an edge when applying for jobs as a community lawyer, legal officer, barrister or solicitor for example. When combined with a major in International Relations, Media Studies, Indigenous Studies, or Social Justice, this double degree enables you to follow your passion, broaden your education, and pursue a range of careers.
  • Develop your skills and knowledge-base in many different scientific areas by taking a major in Environment and Sustainability, Animal or Plant Science, Psychology, or Wine Science.
  • Combine this with an Arts major, such as Journalism, Contemporary Media, Public Relations, International Relations or Social Justice, which enables you to communicate and explain the significance of scientific research widely and to make informed policy-decisions.
  • Be a leader in a technology driven world, with a career that combines the best of the business world with your passion for information technology.
  • The Bachelor of Business and Commerce and Bachelor of Information Technology will bring a competitive edge in the eyes of possible employers who are increasingly needing digitally-savvy employees.
  • Learn different approaches to ethical decision making, how to think creatively and analytically, and to communicate clearly and concisely in this professionally-oriented double degree. 
  • Careers can include private practice solicitor or barrister, corporate legal counsel, tax manager, forensic investigator, chartered accountant, business analyst, financial institutional lawyer, government sector employee at state or federal level or in-house positions with businesses or community organisations requiring specialist in-house legal skills. 
  • Pair your interest in Business and Commerce with the perfect platform to explore your curiosity of Sciences. 
  • With a double degree, your career opportunities are extensive. You’ll be ready to take on roles in scientific practice combined with business management within the government, regulatory, health, IT and research sectors. 

Combined degrees

  • Gain the skills to become a successful engineer in the workforce, combined with a strong background of business and commerce principles and practice.

  • This combined degree focuses on Computer Systems Engineering and Applied Computer Science studies and provides the knowledge and skills required to design, develop and implement both the hardware and software components of computer systems in today’s technological world.
  • Professional accreditation ...
