The Melbourne curriculum
Your Melbourne experience is yours to shape. If you’re interested in a career in architecture, building, planning or design you can start with our Bachelor of Design, or why not check out the Bachelor of Science and the Bachelor of Fine Arts (Production)?
Your undergraduate degree is an opportunity to explore your interests and study a variety of topics. It allows you to enhance your university experience and career options by giving you professional expertise from a range of disciplines. After your undergraduate degree, you can enter the workforce or progress to a specialised graduate, masters degree.

What is breadth?
Unique to the Melbourne curriculum, our undergraduate degrees allow you to explore subjects outside your core study area – we call this breadth. Breadth means you can tailor your course to fit your individual passions and career ambitions. You may choose to take a single subject in something you’ve always been curious about; or take a sequence of three or more subjects called a breadth track. This can help you develop knowledge and skills relevant to topics like experiencing Indigenous culture, a musical instrument or a language.
Better than a double degree
Become a professionally accredited architect, urban planner and more by completing an undergraduate degree in design followed by a specialised masters degree. Secure your place in both degrees with a Graduate Degree Package. You’ll graduate with a higher level of qualification than a traditional double degree
