Description

This double-degree program provides a professional education in a range of commerce disciplines, with a strong emphasis on developing analytical skills. It enables students to include in their studies a range of social science and humanities disciplines.

The broad-based, flexible and multi-disciplinary Monash commerce degree provides a thorough understanding of the workings of the economy and business. Through professional training in the commerce disciplines, the course develops a capacity for logical analysis and the knowledge and skills required to manage public and private enterprises.

Studying humanities develops general knowledge and specific intellectual skills relating to human thought and relations, such as the way we communicate or how the past has affected the present. Social science analyses and explains societies and the relationships of individuals within those societies.

Participants in this program receive a scholarship which is renewable for each year of the course, subject to satisfactory academic performance.

Outcomes

Course progression requirements

The performance of deans scholars will be evaluated at the end of each year. Students are expected to continue achieving at the same high level at which they entered the program (normally a distinction grade average). Students who are unable to maintain the required level of performance in each year may forfeit their Deans Scholars Award.
