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
