Table RE3: Majors in the BResEc degree
The definitions of majors in the following tables apply for students commencing in 2005 or later. These students are required to complete 48 credit points in their chosen majors. Their majors must comply with the requirements for the BResEc degree as set out below, and also with the minimum requirements of the discipline teaching that major.
Students who have 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 a Resource Economics major. In addition, students may also complete major(s) in other disciplines.
 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 BResEc 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.
