Minor Studies 2016

Students in many programs are required to take a minor study. A minor study is a group of courses designed to provide students with an area of knowledge and skills that either:

  • draw from a recognised discipline and are designed to contribute to the major study, or

  • may transcend traditional disciplinary boundaries, but complements the objectives of the program.

A number of minor studies are available to students in these programs, including specific minors offered in each program.

Students are advised to consider the whole range of minor studies offered. However the availability of general minor studies may be limited by a number of factors, including:

  • the authorisation of the student’s choice by the Academic Adviser and Faculty

  • the satisfactory completion of pre-requisite courses by the student

  • the provisions of the Faculty offering the minor, including audition and interview requirements in certain areas of the Arts and Education

  • timetabling constraints

  • quotas.

Minor studies should be taken in a structured sequence.
