1.  Requirements for the ACCOUNTING major
Note. The following information is for students who commenced study in their degree from 2011.
For the award of a major in Accounting, students complete:
(i) three junior prerequisite units of study (18 credit points), as follows:
BUSS1030 Accounting, Business and Society (or ACCT1005 Accounting, Business and Society) *
ACCT1006 Accounting and Financial Management
BUSS1020 Quantitative Business Analysis (or ECMT1010 Business and Economic Statistics A) *
* These units are completed as junior core units for the Bachelor of Commerce.
(ii) two compulsory senior units of study (12 credit points), as follows:
ACCT2011 Financial Accounting A
ACCT2012 Management Accounting A
(iii) a minimum of 24 credit points in elective senior units of study (minimum of four units) selected from the following:
ACCT3011 Financial Accounting B
ACCT3012 Management Accounting B
ACCT3013 Financial Statement Analysis
ACCT3014 Auditing and Assurance
ACCT3031 International Corporate Governance
ACCT3032 Current Issues in Management Accounting
ACCT3098 Accounting Honours Preparation A (three credit points)
ACCT3099 Accounting Honours Preparation B (three credit points)
CLAW2201 Corporations Law.
The units ACCT3098 and ACCT3099 are worth three credit points each. If students wish to include these units as part of their major, they would need to complete at least five elective units of study to meet elective requirements. CLAW2201 requires the completion of additional prerequisites outside the junior units listed for this major.
Note: Senior units of study can only be counted towards one major. Senior units cannot be "double counted" towards two majors. For example, CLAW2201 cannot be counted towards both a major in Accounting and a major in Commercial Law.
