BB-HSCBUS Double degree Hawthorn Send me a link to this course

Selected major: Neuroscience

This major links biology and physiology with psychophysiology and neuroimaging — and we’re the only uni in Australia that offers our research students single-site access to cutting-edge MRI and MEG technologies. You’ll learn to interpret the data generated by these machines to identify healthy brains, brain disorders and diseases of the central nervous system.

Newer topics like Developmental and Molecular Neuroscience give you a more holistic understanding of contemporary neuroscience along with Neuropsychopharmacology, which connects you with our Centre for Human Psychopharmacology.   

Many graduates have gone on to neuroscience careers in clinical neurophysiology and sleep labs or entered research (Melbourne is a world-leader) with Swinburne, The Florey Institute, Melbourne Brain Centre, Bionics Institute, Centre for Neural Engineering and CERA.

Selected major: Accounting

In this Accounting major you’ll learn how to deliver insights that drive business outcomes while appreciating how the pursuit of profit and purpose are the foundations of future, sustainable businesses. 

Gain an appreciation of what theories and methods develop your practical skills and use accounting technologies to evaluate, analyse and communicate financial information.  

The major will prepare you for career opportunities in business advisory, company accounting, management accounting, financial management, financial information systems, tax and auditing.

Graduates with an Accounting major may be eligible to apply for membership of CPA Australia (CPAA), Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CAANZ), the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) or the Institute of Public Accountants (IPA). 

To be eligible for the CPA program you must also complete unit LAW20019 Law of Commerce.

Students seeking membership with overseas professional accounting bodies may need to complete additional units.  

If you are interested in accounting, you may also wish to consider Swinburne’s Bachelor of Accounting, or Bachelor of Accounting and Business Information Technology (Professional).

The Bachelor of Health Science/Bachelor of Business double degree aims to develop a set of complementary and cross-disciplinary skills and knowledge in health and business.

You'll also gain core skills and knowledge in business, management and operations to prepare for work in modern organisations.

In this double degree, in the Health Sciences Project (HEA30001), and Industry Consulting Project (BUS30009), you’ll have the opportunity to apply your learning and work collaboratively in multi-disciplinary teams on an industry-linked project.
