You’ve heard it a zillion times already I bet. The ‘decent jobs are rarer than diamonds and a robot will replace you in a decade anyway’ rhetoric, making it more and more stressful with every passing year for students to decide which course to study at uni. Griffith University has come to your rescue with a bunch of brand new degrees in 2020 that will have your mates saying, ‘You’re enrolled in what?!‘
One of the best ways to boost your CV is to impress your potential employer with a variety of skills, to make sure you stand out in the crowd.
And how do you achieve that without, the need to include your obscure skills like being able the recite the alphabet backwards?
You do a double degree, obviously.
Only there’s a few issues with that under normal circumstances. First of all, tacking on Law or International Relations to your degree is becoming pretty par for the course (no pun intended). But have you ever heard of a Bachelor of Sport Development combined with a Bachelor of Business? Or Bachelor of Psychological Science/Bachelor of Criminology and Criminal Justice, which lowkey sounds like the kind of thing Batman might have studied? Seriously though, understanding how people can get caught up in the criminal justice system and knowing how crime can be analysed and prevented could be very helpful for work in community corrections to child protection.
Embrace the unexpected! It’s bound to make a hiring manager do a double take instead of reaching for the shredder.
Believe it or not, the best news is yet to come. Think you’re going to be trapped on campus for another eight decades to be able to do all these extra subjects? Think again – most of the new doubles that Griffith offers are super streamlined, requiring just one extra year of study.
And if you’re up for the challenge of doing the ultimate higher education speedrun, Griffith also offers a third semester so you can fast track your degree, but that’s totally up to you.
If you’re ready to take your learning to the next level head to Griffith University to get your double degree on!
With industry placements, global study options and scholarships all on offer, you really have no excuse not to!
