With flexible study schedules and a wide range of programmes, sometimes choosing a private uni is the more sensible option. After all, you can choose the best matchup of 2 majors, thereby increasing your specialisation which will improve your job opportunities and career progression.

Whether you wanna chiong your modules or study part time, consider full-time or part-time studies at Murdoch University. It’s one of Australia’s leading universities and offers over 180 Double Majors Degree across 18 disciplines – an option not every local uni has. Here’s what it offers. 


Study in one of the new Double Major programmes

Bachelor of Science in Cyber Forensics and Information Security and Banking


 Murdoch - Cyber Forensics

As more companies in Singapore become digitised, cybersecurity threats will inevitably rise. Despite the demand, the shortage of cybersecurity specialists here leaves us vulnerable to attacks. So arm yourself with a major in Cyber Forensics and you’re well on the way of joining the ranks of cybersecurity specialists.  

For instance, you’ll learn how to become a computer forensics analyst, where you’ll evaluate evidence from computer hacks and even solve cyber crimes. Bonus: This position is highly demanded by large corporations and government boards – aka handsome salary. 

With a second major in banking, you’ll also learn corporate finance skills that’ll come in handy if you’re handling the cybersecurity of financial institutions – like those of top banks! 


Bachelor of Business in Management and Communication and Media Studies


If you’ve ever thought about running your own media company, take up a Bachelor of Business in Management and Communication and Media Studies and learn what goes into managing an organisation and how the media industry works.
