Double Majors.
Double the Advantage.

Over 250 Bachelor’s Degrees to choose from. The Degree programmes combine cutting-edge theory with real-world skills so you can graduate career-ready.

6 Key Reasons Why a Double Major Degree Benefits You

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

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 school work 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.

A Diploma holder at age 25 who defers his or her Degree for 3 years might miss out on S$49,393 (over the next 3 years).

A Diploma holder at age 30 who defers his or her Degree for 10 years might miss out on S$332,280 (over the next 10 years).

Taking a Double Major offers you the combined skills and knowledge from two disciplines, allowing you to complement your skill sets, yielding unique insights and experiences and enhance your career prospects.

For instance, a Double Major in Human Resource Management 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.

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, North Carolina espoused the virtue of students who took Double Majors by stating that, “With Double Majors, students are saying that they are interested in viewing the world through more than one set of lenses.”

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 communication 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.

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.

Murdoch University Degree programmes offer a mixture of theory and practical work focusing on real-world applicability, providing opportunities to complete real-world projects for industry partners in your field.

The Murdoch Advantage

Students with Polytechnic Diplomas will be given exemptions and may gain entry to Year 2 of the programme.

They can complete the programme in 16 months instead of 28 months depending on the specialisation.

Subject to university’s approval.

You have the flexibility to plan your own schedule and study at your own pace.

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.

As a firm believer of giving back to society, I have always seized opportunities to host my alma mater’s events. From being imparted important communication and “survival” skill sets by my lecturers, to emceeing at Murdoch’s graduation ceremonies, I am honoured for the countless opportunities to apply my creative problem-solving skills in real-life situations.

Thanks to Murdoch’s support, I am proud to be where I am today – a lecturer at Temasek Polytechnic teaching public speaking. I definitely credit Murdoch’s Double Major Degree programme for my achievements.

Murdoch University Graduate (2017)

I graduated from Nanyang Polytechnic with a Diploma in Business Management. While my peers went overseas or to other institutions, I decided to search for something that would fit my needs.

My friend, who works in Kaplan, introduced me to Murdoch University. I decided to further my studies at Kaplan because its Degree programme can be completed within my ideal duration and the Degree is accredited by the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council and recognised by the Australian Psychological Society.

I chose to take up a Double Major in Psychology and Management because I found the Degree programme would allow me to study people-related topics, so that I could learn how to impact youths’ lives and also, help me in my interaction with the youths.

Murdoch University Student (2017)

After completing my Diploma in Hospitality & Tourism Management in Kaplan, I immediately continued to pursue a Degree in Hospitality & Tourism Management and Management with Murdoch University.

In my opinion, having a Bachelor’s Degree is very critical to staying relevant in Singapore. A Degree is an investment that will bring job security and it is a down payment on my future. I believe that by obtaining a Degree, I would be highly marketable and this will pave the way for multiple opportunities for myself.

To decide on which university was an easy decision! Murdoch University is recognised worldwide and it has a vast offering of over 180 Double Majors and 18 disciplines to choose from.

I decided to pursue a Double Major Degree programme because I can learn two specialisations and gain the competitive edge over my peers.

I chose Management as the other major because the modules are industry-relevant. They add value to my current job. I have a stronger understanding due to hands-on application of the theories learned in class. I am more confident to see a task through from beginning to end despite challenges and obstacles along the way. To me, it is an important skill in a real-world professional setting where things do not always go as planned.

I would encourage Diploma graduates to pursue their Degrees. It is a commitment but the benefits you reap after earning your Degree will make the investment well worth it. Murdoch University is the right choice for you!

Bachelor of Business in International Business and Management (Double Major)

Murdoch University Student (2017)

After I graduated from Republic Polytechnic with a Diploma in Materials Science, I was enlisted in the army in 2011.

In 2015, I joined SAFTI Military Institute as an Instructor. My job is to educate officer cadets with military fundamentals and knowledge on aspects of their jobs. It was around the same time that I decided to further my studies.

By pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree, I hope to equip myself with the skill set to help the cadets in adjusting to the environment quickly and enhance my existing skills, so that I can perform better in my current role. It also opens up new opportunities in SAF or future endeavours.

I have chosen International Business and Management as my specialisations so that I can expose myself to new fields of study, gain knowledge and develop skill sets.

Most importantly, I want to challenge myself. It gives me a great sense of accomplishment, and the confidence to expand my network and move upwards in my career.

Kaplan offers many choices for Bachelor’s Degree programmes. I decided to go for Murdoch University due to its recognition in Australia. It is ranked in the World’s Top 100 Universities under 50 years old by Times Higher Education 2016.

The other plus point is Murdoch University offers more than 180 Double Majors. I have chosen a double major in International Business and Management.

I believe International Business will give me the know-how in creating business opportunities overseas; and with Management, I am able to learn the proper way of managing people and getting things done through people. In my line of work, it requires me to manage more people as I progress.

As I am a part-time student, I appreciate the blended learning introduced by Murdoch University. It is a hybrid teaching which combines e-learning with traditional classroom methods. I can catch up on what I have missed or to recollect my thoughts after the class.

The lecturers are experienced in their specialisations, fun and engaging.

I would recommend Murdoch University to others.

Bachelor of Science in Cyber Forensics & Information Security and Business Information Systems (Double Major)

Murdoch University Student (2018)

As cybercrimes and unethical hacking are escalating and becoming more prevalent, there is an increasing demand for cybersecurity professionals not just in Singapore but globally. I decided to obtain a Degree in Cyber Security.

Moreover, with my Diploma in Information Security from Nanyang Polytechnic, I was exempted from some modules. To broaden my knowledge and skill sets, I have decided to take a Double Major Degree so as to gain competitive advantage and increase my career choices. And the reason I have chosen Murdoch University because the Degree is internationally recognised.

My job scope includes monitoring, analysing, investigating and escalation of real-time security risks that are threats to the organisation. It includes providing timely detection, identification, and containment of possible cyber-attacks or intrusions. And also to determine the effectiveness and impact assessment of an observed attack

No doubt, Murdoch University Bachelor’s Degree in Cyber Forensics and Information Security & Business Information Systems boosted my skills and knowledge to perform my job effectively. And the programme is accredited by Australian Computer Society.

The challenge we now face is to shape a digital society that is resilient to cyber threats, I encourage people who are keen to combat these threats, to join the cybersecurity industry. There is plenty of opportunities for graduates because Singapore is facing a massive shortage of cybersecurity and information and communications technology professionals.

Account Manager, GOVT Singapore

Bachelor of Arts in Web Communication and Public Relations (Double Major)

Murdoch University Student (2018)

I am a Senior Account Executive with Saatchi & Saatchi Singapore. My key role is client servicing, essentially the middleman between the client and the agency. Managing the client’s needs and being involved in all the moving parts of the campaigns.

I connect my agency’s creative efforts with the advertisers’ needs, from leading the first meeting on a new account to researching media outlets for a campaign.

I have chosen Web Communication due to the strong growth in the digital media industry, and I aim to equip myself by obtaining an academic qualification in this specialisation.

Web Communication Degree is an innovative qualification that provides me with essential practical, theoretical and technical knowledge in the core areas of social media strategy, search engine optimisation, digital content strategy and web analytics.

It will also help me in my job to formulate integrated campaigns for my clients.

I have also decided to major in public relations as I wanted to gain an in-depth understanding of public relations and how it could complement my work.

The modules covered by Web Communication Degree are practical and applicable. My two favourites are Web Metrics and Screen: Small, Medium and Large. They are fun, and there is a lot of hands-on learning.

I have decided to further my studies due to several reasons.

Firstly, I graduated from Ngee Ann Polytechnic with a Diploma in Advertising and Public Relations. With my Poly Diploma, I received 8 module exemptions and can complete my Degree in 16 months instead of 28 months.

Second, the job market is extremely competitive, having a diploma qualification will not suffice. I believe a University education will help me to succeed in today’s workforce and fast-track my career.

Third, I want to learn and gain more knowledge and expand my skillsets.

Lastly, I want to gain a sense of personal achievement.

After taking a detailed look at the modules offered, I decided to take up the Degree. Some of the modules I learnt in Polytechnic, are covered in the Degree programme with a lot more depth.

Another reason leading to my choice was due to the flexible study schedule offered by Murdoch University.

Hours are long and erratic working in an advertising agency. With this flexibility, I can plan my study schedule. Having a flexible study schedule caters to my hectic work, and the timing of the lesson allows me to get to class on time.

The blended learning suits my hectic schedule. There were occasions when I could not make it for classes; I was able to retrieve the uploaded videos and watch them.

Another plus point, we watch pre-recorded lectures and complete pre-workshop activities before attending class.

Blended learning ensures that we have a productive session during the lesson. We can use the time to clarify anything we did not understand and delve deeper into challenging topics as opposed to a typical class where we only listen to the lecturer.

The blended learning not only allows the more effective use of my time, but it also gives me the flexibility to manage time better.
