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.
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 choose to take one or two optional modules instead of elective courses. A module is a group of three courses (45 points) that focuses on a specific skill or area of knowledge to benefit or inform future careers.
You will complete two General Education courses. You can also include up to two courses (30 points) from other degree programmes.
In your first year you will probably 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 explore your interests and discover your strengths.
Towards the end of your first year, you will choose your two majors. In later years you will concentrate on these subjects.
