An arts / science degree will give you a combination of knowledge and skills that apply to a range of careers in areas like environmental science, journalism, research, health and business. The arts and sciences studies are divided equally across this four-year double degree, giving you two distinct majors to combine in a way that reflects your interests and goals. Choose from arts subjects like anthropology, languages, archaeology, philosophy and photography, and team them with science areas including environmental geoscience, zoology, genetics, chemistry, physics or microbiology to create a study path. Through the science subjects, you'll have access to purpose-built teaching and research laboratories and will work alongside some of Australia's leading researchers. La Trobe's arts subjects also offer a balance of theoretical knowledge and practical experience, giving you the skills you need to adapt to today's changing jobs landscape. La Trobe University offers programs to help you transition from high school to the demands of university, along with volunteer and work experience placements. You also have the option to study with one of La Trobe's student exchange partners, gaining credit towards your degree while overseas. You can apply to study this course at the Melbourne Campus through La Trobe's Hallmark Scholars Program.


Students are required to complete 540 credit points. This includes 240 credit points in arts, 240 credit points in science, and 60 credit points of electives from across the university. Students may complete this double degree in four years as part of an accelerated study program.
