Arts majors explained
A major consists of a structured sequence of at least eight units (48 credit points) in a particular discipline or field of study, and is acknowledged on the Bachelor award upon graduation. Students are required to complete at least one major in their Bachelor degree.
Students can complete two majors in the Bachelor of Arts (BP001), known as:
- a Degree-Specific Major (must be selected from Arts);
- and a Second Major (can be selected from Arts, Commerce, Design, or Science).
Some degree-specific majors require students to complete compulsory complementary units in addition to the eight units of the major.
Example: a student might complete a Bachelor of Arts degree, with a 'degree-specific major' in Communication and Media Studies and a 'second major' in Marketing.
