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.
You can complete a Bachelor of Arts in Economics or a Bachelor of Commerce in Economics (potentially alongside another complementary major).
Stage I courses deal with the broad areas of microeconomics and macroeconomics. Microeconomics is about decision-making by individual consumers and firms, and how resources are priced and allocated through markets.
Macroeconomics deals with outcomes for an economy as a whole, such as employment and exchange rates. Both microeconomics and macroeconomics are concerned with how government policies and market outcomes interact.
At more advanced levels, you can study all the main areas of economics and pursue your own interests.
You can take a major in Economics as one of your two BA majors (a double major). Complementary BA majors with Economics could be Politics and International Relations or Sociology. You could also choose your second major from a subject such as History or English if you wanted to add another dimension to your studies.
You will need to pass at least 120 points (eight courses) towards each of your majors, including at least 45 points (three courses) at Stage III.
