Our Comprehensive courses allow you to select from a wide range of subjects within a broad field of study. You can choose a Monash Comprehensive course in five broad fields: arts, business, commerce, information technology or science, and then customise your course to make it uniquely yours. In this course, you will study a range of subjects from across the business field, broadening your knowledge in this area while also deepening your knowledge in at least one subject that will become your major.

Partner with another course

Double degree courses allow you to study towards two different degrees at the same time, and graduate with two separate qualifications. And because a required subject in one course can count as an elective in the other, our double degrees take up to two years less than if you studied for the two degrees separately.
