Double degrees allow you to deepen your knowledge and expertise within two separate study areas. This means you can choose from our range of exciting, diverse courses and embark on a journey as unique as you are.

Please refer to the course page for each component course for detailed information on the course objectives and learning outcomes.

In a double degree, you will achieve the learning outcomes of both component courses.

Career outcomes

A double degree can help you build a unique set of skills that will help you stand out in a competitive employment market. When you graduate from a double degree you will receive a separate degree certificate (also called a testamur) for each component course.

Please refer to the course page for each component course for career and professional recognition information.

Course structure

In a 5 year double degree you will complete a total of 500 credit points comprising 300 credit points from one course and 200 credit points from another.

There are two courses that have a 300 credit point component:

  • Bachelor of Agricultural Science with Honours
  • Bachelor of Laws

The requirements of each course, such as majors and core units, are specified below. To build your own double degree, simply combine the requirements from each course you are interested in.

To complete two courses from the 200 credit point component list, refer to the 4 Year Double Degree page.

Double degrees often require careful planning to ensure you can complete your studies on time. This may mean taking some units online instead of on-campus and studying in Summer Semester or other intensive study periods. Some courses and major combinations are not compatible. These are noted under each course below.

As a student completing a double degree we strongly recommend you speak to a course information officer before you enroll in your first year.

Contact UConnect for assistance with study planning and to contact a course information officer.

300 credit point course component:

The Bachelor of Agricultural Science component of a Double Degree requires the completion of 300 credit points comprising:

  • 100 credit point Major
  • 100 credit points of Core units
  • 100 credit points for embedded Honours (50 credit points core and 50 credit points in either a research stream or a professional stream)

The courses that can be taken as a Double Degree with the Bachelor of Agricultural Science are shown below under Available Combinations. Some combinations of courses and majors may have restrictions, which are noted under Exclusions.

Are you curious about the depravity of Roman emperors or the vengeful natures of ancient gods? Or why the fall of Rome remains a key point of comparison for modern global politics? When you study Ancient Civilisations you come to understand the everchanging nature of human societies, as well as the deep continuities that bind humanity together. You will explore topics in mythology and religion, drama, history, classical epic, and many more. As such, Ancient Civilisations is dynamic and multidisciplinary: you will gain experience with ancient historiography, literary criticism, material culture, and philosophical enquiry. 

We begin with surveys of the Greek and Roman cultures which introduce skills for interpreting ancient primary sources. Our intermediate units introduce you to classical scholarship and continue to deepen skills in critical analysis of primary sources. At the advanced level, you begin to engage critically with secondary scholarship and build intellectual independence by developing your own research projects. Together, the Ancient Civilisations and Ancient Languages majors make up the Classics discipline, and both majors are taught by renowned Classics lecturers. Our major develops critical thinking, research methods, and intercultural awareness, which prepares you for a range of professional careers that require an understanding of the ethical implications of a project, long-term effects of actions or diverse experiences of policy. Areas where such skills are needed include: Politics and Policy, Education, Human Resources and Non-Government Organisations.

When you study Latin and Greek, you will find an exciting new home in the languages that shaped the fundamentals of western thought in the sciences, philosophy, medicine, and literature. Beautiful and fascinating in their own right, these ancient languages provide you with a deeper understanding of modern culture, specialist technical terminologies and many modern languages through their roots in Latin and Greek. Each week you will experience the intense satisfaction of building your brain into a stronger, better, more agile resource. Understanding the precious cultural resources bound up in even 'dead' languages also exposes you to the politics of vulnerable Indigenous languages, such as the returned and reconstructed island language of Tasmania, palawa kani. 

This is a unique course recognised as the most dynamic (and best off-campus) ancient languages course in Australasia. Our introductory units begin with Latin and are designed for students with no experience in ancient or modern languages. These units pay attention to fundamental principles of grammar, informing general understanding of language structure, and guide students through skillfully adapted texts allowing direct access to ancient thought. Our intermediate units continue to develop grammatical skills while gradually incorporating original texts. At advanced level you will read ancient texts in their original language, and begin Ancient Greek in accelerated form. The Ancient Languages Major integrates closely with Ancient Civilisations and connects with several majors in the Humanities, Social Sciences and Legal Studies. Learning Ancient Greek and Latin and reading their centuries of literature are among the great intellectual adventures, and employers recognise the analytical and creative skills such training develops.

Available: On campus Hobart and online.

In a time when the term ‘curated’ is thrown around everywhere, the Art and Curatorial Practices major shows how an understanding of art as both artefacts and experiences can shape how creative work is made, analysed and communicated. Curatorial practices, as a term, encapsulates the idea that curatorship question the traditional narratives of art history, and create transformative encounters with creative work. In this major, you will develop visual and spatial literacies in conjunction with high level writing and project management skills, enabling you to conceptualise and carry out curatorial projects in the visual arts. This major immerses you in contemporary curatorial debates and practices, using object-based learning, authentic assessment, and industry contextualisation. You will develop an understanding of art theory and history from a contemporary Tasmanian standpoint, with a commitment to decolonisation, ecological awareness, and place.

This major will prepare you to work in areas such as curating and administrating in emerging, independent and events-based arts, as well as equipping you for further study in postgraduate coursework and research. The major will provide training in project management and develop your effective communication strategies and digital literacy. Unit choices allow you to explore how art and curatorial practices can facilitate the voices of diverse communities, become part of tourism and cultural heritage interpretation, and bring the past into the present through digital humanities. In your curatorial practice project, you will develop and pitch an idea for your own curatorial project to a panel of industry experts, ready to take your next step through connections with art institutions and experimental, independent art organisations.

You will need to complete 25 credit points of Introductory units. This may include either of the Indigenous Lifeworlds units.

Creating artwork involves encounters with objects, materials, ideas, cultures and other life forms. This unit will involve visits to Museums, Art Galleries and public artworks to investigate the many forms of collection and archive within a community. Public collections include…

Crime is an issue that governments and communities face every day. To stop crime, we must examine how and why it happens. Criminology is the study of crime, criminality and criminal justice systems; it focuses on criminalisation as a process, the causes of crime, the social context of offending, crime prevention, systems of social control, and the punishment and rehabilitation of offenders. In this major you will explore the meaning of justice and the best ways to respond to crime and criminality while debating the role of the media, the contribution of parliaments and what really happens at crime scenes and in court rooms. Our case studies include examples from across the world as well as what happens in our local communities. We look at everything from cybercrime, murder and theft through to corruption and environmental crime. Over the course of this major you will come to understand the main features of criminology as an academic discipline and be able to apply criminological theories, concepts and evidence. You will learn to analyse the causes and responses to crime as well as critically evaluate explanations of crime at local, national and global levels. This major will provide the knowledge and skills to work in criminal justice agencies and develop initiatives and agendas for change. Some specific areas where you may find work include policing, crime prevention, corrections and policy research. Units can be studied both on-campus and online.

When you study language and culture through the best and most compelling books and stories of the ages you will learn to read the world around you actively and critically. You will come to understand how texts work as well as the key elements of poetry, narrative, theatre and filmmaking. Reading texts from the medieval period to the present, from fiction and poetry to theatre, film, television and the Internet, you will discover how to analyse texts and genres in their cultural, historical and contemporary contexts. Through reading, viewing and writing you will discover how to reflect, imagine and create while learning to develop your own voice as a writer. Through mastering different styles you will establish an understanding of how to write in different disciplines and for different purposes.

A major in English and Writing prepares students for any field in which careful reading, clear thinking, and persuasive writing are valued. Our emphases on textual analysis and writing skills make English a traditionally strong undergraduate major for any professions requiring advanced communication skills

When you study Gender & Diversity you will be immersed in an interdisciplinary exploration of the meaning and impact of gender, race, and sexuality on all our lives. Assumptions about sex, gender and race have influenced everything from our most fundamental understandings of what it is to be human to ancient poetry to contemporary fashion. You will become familiar with a variety of theoretical approaches to the subject and will be given a range of methodological tools to help you understand those cultural assumptions and practices which have shaped our lived experiences as gendered, racialised beings.

The core units in Gender & Diversity examine questions of identity, power and change, including how understandings of human bodies and sexuality have changed over time. You will analyse the various ways that masculinities and femininities are enacted in the world, and develop a critical awareness of the gendered and racial dynamics which influence these masculinities and femininities. All human beings live within a particular gender order and racial system: to study gender & diversity is to become more aware of the possibilities and constraints of these structures and their effect on your life and the world’s people and processes.

Knowledge gained in this major will prepare you for work in all kinds of settings where an appreciation of diversity matters. This includes the community sector, equity and diversity units in businesses and institutions, discrimination law and human resources.

German is the language of some of the world’s best-known innovators, scientists, entrepreneurs, philosophers, musicians and artists. It is spoken by approximately 100 million people in major European countries like Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Germany has the largest population in the European Union and German remains the language with the most native speakers in Europe. It is also a major community language in Australia; migration from German-speaking countries has been a part of Australia from the early nineteenth century to the present.

Germany is a modern and culturally diverse country. The largest economy in the European Union and the fourth-largest economy in the world, its emphasis on progress and innovation has manifested itself in Australia through well-known companies like Bayer and Volkswagen. The German labour market is opening up for graduates and welcomes specialists from abroad. German language skills are an asset in many careers across international relations, business, engineering and medicine, teaching, science and music.

Against this context, the German major at UTAS comprises the study of both German language and culture, including literature, history and society. You can commence at beginner level or a higher level if you are a background speaker. All levels of study are aligned with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR: A1 to C2). This guarantees the international comparability and transferability of your acquired language skills. There will also be various opportunities to participate in exchanges and apply for scholarships to complete units of study in a German-speaking country, or engage in cross-institutional study in Australia. Generous scholarships are provided by German institutions such as the DAAD.

The past is an extraordinary place. When you study history you will come to understand the whole world by understanding the long-term changes and continuities that shaped today. Historical knowledge is a vital component of cultural literacy, broadens your mind, fosters the capacity for empathy and equips you to be a global citizen. Historians are like very open-minded detectives: questioning, analysing and interpreting evidence from the past. When someone cries 'fake news', you will have the skills to find evidence from a range of sources to reconsider the claims of the present. You will also have the inexplicable joy of encountering the unexpected and the unknown. It has never been more urgent to understand the past so that we have the ability to make new futures.

Through the History major at the University of Tasmania you will gain a sophisticated sense of your location in time and place, and will become skilled in historical research, critical analysis and communication of ideas. You will develop skills in researching a variety of historical evidence that is becoming increasingly accessible in digital forms. You will learn to analyse sources and issues, and fluently express your ideas in discussions, essays and other forms of communication. History is very present in Tasmania, with its many sites and markers of a deep and complex past linking the island to Australia and the world. Our units are all available in both on-campus and online modes.

You may know about Bali and Komodo dragons but after studying Indonesian you will also know that our closest neighbour has an extraordinary literary history and that knowing Indonesian is an intellectual passport to one of the most exciting and diverse cultures in South-East Asia. A better understanding of Indonesia and fluency in the language are assets for Australians. Many of Australia's key national interests, from security and borders to agriculture and trade, are heavily dependent on Indonesia. As we strengthen our strategic relations with Indonesia, the importance of your knowledge will also grow.

Being non-scriptic and non-tonal, Indonesian is a relatively easy language to learn. It is also very accessible since it is spoken by more than 250 million people in Indonesia, and understood by the Malay-speaking population in other parts of Southeast Asia. You can study Indonesian beginner or more advanced levels. Our approachable teaching staff, with the help of high-quality interactive teaching materials, will support you to attain high fluency in the language and at the same time gain insights into various aspects of Indonesian society. You can also gain credit towards your degree by having an unforgettable experience in the in-country programs that we manage in collaboration with Australian and Indonesian institutions.

Careers and institutions that use Indonesian speakers in Australia include NGOs, Foreign Affairs, Creative Industries, community groups and public policy.
