Subject areas from other faculties

Students in many degrees offered by the Business School are able to complete a major and/or electives from another faculty of the University of Sydney (depending on credit point restrictions and approval of the faculty offering the major). For example, a language major from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, or a major in Environmental Studies from the Faculty of Science can be completed as a secondary major in the Bachelor of Commerce or Bachelor of Commerce (Liberal Studies).

The unit of study allowances for subject areas outside of the Business School for particular degrees are as follows:

  • Students in the Bachelor of Commerce can complete a maximum of 48 credit points from outside of the University of Sydney Business School and School of Economics (Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences).
  • Students in the Bachelor of Commerce (Liberal Studies) can complete a maximum of 84 credit points from outside of the University of Sydney Business School.
  • Students enrolled in combined Bachelor of Commerce degrees should refer to their individual degree rules for specific non-Business School and School of Economics unit limits. In all combined Bachelor of Commerce degrees, students must complete a minimum of 96 credit points in units offered by the University of Sydney Business School and School of Economics. Students enrolled in the Bachelor of Commerce and Bachelor of Laws cannot complete any units other than those offered by the Business School, School of Economics and Sydney Law School.

Students should refer to the other faculty's handbooks for details of other major areas of study and unit of study requirements (sydney.edu.au/handbooks).
