Degree structure and subject choices

There are no compulsory units of study in the Medical Humanities. You are free to choose the subjects that interest you in making up your degree. We require only that the majority of your units of study are drawn from the Medical Humanities and the Bioethics programs at Sydney University. The rule is that at least 24 credit points for the graduate certificate (100%), 24 credit points for the graduate diploma (80%), and 36 credit points for the master's degree (75%) must be completed from Medical Humanities subjects (all those coded as MMHU) and Bioethics subjects (all those coded BETH). Students may be exempt from this rule under special circumstances.
