Flexible Double Master Degree

Study a Flexible Double Master Degree in Arts and Social Sciences

The Flexible Double Master Degree provides enormous flexibility through being able to combine any two degrees available in the program for which the entry requirements are met and, by cross counting of electives, completing two degrees in one year less than completing the degrees separately. For students who are eligible for credit for previous degrees or work experience, the double degree may require as little as two years.

CRICOS code: 088510F

More information is available on Programs and Courses.

The degrees available for combination are:

Self-assessment

To help you understand the amount of credit you may be eligible for, please refer to the below scenarios based on three typical undergraduate degree types. A listing of all cognate disciplines for each degree is also available to help you determine if your undergraduate study is in a cognate or related field.

Scenario 1—Single Degree

If you have a single Bachelor degree with a 65% average in a cognate area, you may be eligible for 24 units of credit towards the relevant Master degree. Note credit cannot be counted towards both degrees.

Scenario 2 – Single Bachelor Degree with Honours

If you have a single Bachelor degree with Honours (65% and above) in a cognate area, you may be eligible for 48 units of credit towards the relevant Master degree. Note credit cannot be counted towards both degrees.

Scenario 3—Double Bachelor Degree

You may be eligible for 48 units of credit. For example, if you have a Bachelor of Arts (History Major) with a 65% average and a Bachelor of Classical Studies with a 65% average, you would be eligible for 24 units towards a Master of History and Master of Classical Studies respectively. 

All cognate disciplines

Please refer to this matrix to determine if your undergraduate qualification is considered cognate for one of the degrees you would like to study.
