Students who pursue double major programmes in the university are more likely to have higher earnings compared to those who pursue single majors.
They are also more innovative and thereby endear themselves more readily to prospective employers.
These were some of the findings that have recently gained traction in academic circles.
So, are graduates more innovative as a consequence of pursuing a double major, or did they choose this path because creativity was already embedded in their psyches?
Students who pursue double majors certainly want to learn more and do not mind the extra effort. The pursuit of a double major could be also be a signal of proactive and creative choice for students who don’t fit the mould in terms of how higher education is currently delivered.
