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 will acquire knowledge of ancient Greek language. This gives you access to literary texts, so you can develop an appreciation of ancient Greek literature, philosophy and history.
The Greeks established literary genres that have had a profound influence on European literature. Ancient Greek masterpieces include Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, the histories of Herodotus and the dramas of Euripides and Aristophanes.
Greek myth and legend is a formative element of the European imagination, and the central stream of European philosophy flows from the thought and writings of Socrates, Plato and Aristotle.
You can take a major in Greek as one of the two components of your double major for a BA. 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.
