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 relevant faculty). 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 credit point limits for units of study undertaken from non-Commerce subject areas 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 (Economics and Econometrics subject areas).
  • 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 the relevant degree rules to establish non-Business School and School of Economics credit point 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 (limited subject areas only). 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 (Economics and Econometrics subject areas) and Sydney Law School.

Students should refer to the handbook of the offering faculty for details of other major areas of study and unit of study requirements.
