Prerequisites and/or corequisites apply for most units.
Electives must be chosen such that the student will complete a non-AGEC major as specified in the Table of Majors.
Table 3 Majors in the BAgrEc Degree

The definitions of majors in the following tables apply for students commencing in 2012 or later. These students are required to complete 36 credit points of senior units of study in their chosen majors. Their majors must comply with the requirements for the BAgrEc degree as set out below, and also with the minimum requirements of the discipline teaching that major.

Students who commenced in 2004 or earlier will be required to complete 44 credit points to obtain a major. The major will be defined according to the criteria as currently determined by the discipline teaching that major. The current requirements for majors in the University of Sydney Business School and the Faculty of Science can be found in the respective faculty handbooks.

All students must complete an Agricultural Economics major and a non Agricultural Economics major. The Agricultural Economics major and other majors available in the BAgrEc degree are defined in Table 3. Up to three majors will be noted on a student's transcript.

  • For disciplines based in other faculties (e.g. Geography is based in the Faculty of Science) the specification of a major here may differ from that in its 'home' faculty. The requirement for a major within the BAgrEc degree is no less, nor more liberal, than in the discipline's 'home' faculty.
  • A student can count a particular unit of study towards only one major.
  • Where a student could count a unit of study towards more than one major, the student must nominate by the end of their final year the particular major to which the unit is to be allocated.
