Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Business (13J)

Course Structure


The combined degree requirements consist of:
  • A major in each degree component of 8 units: 2 introductory, 2 intermediate and 4 advanced units
  • A minor in each degree component of 4 units: 2 introductory, 2 intermediate level units
  • Degree electives: 4 units in each degree component. In the Bachelor of Arts component, 2 degree electives may be studied at introductory level and 2 at intermediate or advanced level. In the Bachelor of Business component, the degree electives are all at introductory level (with the exception of the degree electives for students studying the Accounting major). Note: The degree electives in the Bachelor of Business are required to be taken at introductory level as they form pre-requisites for later units and would normally be taken in the first 2 years of study, if studying full-time. They are depicted in the structure in years 3 and 4 for the purposes of illustrating the combined degree structure only.

In the Bachelor of Arts component, you choose a major, minor and 4 degree electives. Select one of the 'Degree combinations' below to display the Arts options available.

Bachelor of Business

Students then elect to specialise in one of the following majors, which have linked minors and degree electives, offered by the Faculty.

Note: if you have not chosen a major or minor, you should initially enrol in the following units in the first and second year of study (if studying full-time). These will meet the requirements for the 2 introductory units in the major, the minor and 2 of the degree electives. When choosing the two remaining introductory degree electives, you will need to consider your choice of major.
