The BA takes three years to complete if you are studying full time.
You will choose two BA subjects as your two majors (your ‘double major’). You will take eight courses (120 points) in each major. This includes at least three courses (45 points) at Stage III in each major.
If you would like to study Communication you can either choose it as one of your two majors, or complete our sixteen-course (240-point) specialisation in Communication.
At least half your courses (12 courses or 180 points) must be above Stage I level. The courses for your majors are included in this total.
As well as your majors, you will take elective courses in other subjects. You must study at least three BA subjects (including your majors).
You can include up to two courses (30 points) from other degrees. You will also complete two General Education courses.
You can choose to take an optional module instead of elective courses. A module is a group of three courses (45 points) that focuses on a specific skill or area of knowledge.
In your first year you will normally take eight courses: four in semester one and four in semester two. A typical pattern would be to take two courses in each of three BA subjects, choose one course in a fourth BA subject, and take a General Education course. This gives you an opportunity to discover your interests and strengths.
Towards the end of your first year you will choose your two majors. In later years you will concentrate on these subjects.
If you started your BA in 2017 or earlier refer to these requirements for the Bachelor of Arts.
