Units from the Faculty of Economics and Business

You must include a minimum of 12 credit points from units in the Faculty of Economics and Business. Most students will fulfil this requirement by doing junior units of study. These credit points must come from units of study listed in the Faculty of Economics and Business Handbook, excluding Accounting, Finance and Marketing units.

Socio-Legal Studies Units

You must also include a minimum of 12 credit points in Socio-Legal Studies. For example:

  • SLSS1001 Introduction to Socio-Legal Studies and;
  • SLSS1003 Law and Contemporary Society

Majors

In most subject ares in the Faculty of Science, you get a major when you've done 24 senior credit points in THAT subject area. Remember that senior units of study in Science have 3XXX codes.

24 senior credit points might sound like less work than what's involved in an Arts and Social Sciences major, but remember that, in Science, you need to have not only the appropriate junior prequisites but also the appropriate intermediate prerequisites in place, before you can these senior units of study.

There are some subject areas in the Faculty of Science that have slightly different requirements for a major. Please check the Science Handbook to make sure of the requirements in the subject(s) in which you intend to major.

Could I do more than one major?

Yes, you could complete both an Arts and Social Sciences major and a Science major in your Bachelor of Arts and Sciences degree.
