Execute creative ideas

“The biggest highlight of my time with MAC was covering New York and Paris Fashion Weeks. I was able to work closely with designers, makeup artists and models to create unique, branded content for our global social channels, which was an incredible experience.”

    double degree

    Our double degrees

    Studying for two degrees at once means you’ll graduate with double the qualifications, but it won’t take you double the time.

    Increase your skills and knowledge across two different learning areas with a double degree to give you more career opportunities and choices. You’ll study units from both courses, but the condensed program structure means it may take only a year longer than a single degree.
