Minor subjects

If you are studying a Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Business Studies or Bachelor of Science degree you have the opportunity to include a Minor subject from a wide range of business, humanities, social sciences and sciences specialisations.  If you successfully complete the courses required for your selected Minor, the Minor will appear on your Academic Transcript.

Minors enable you to increase the breadth of your degree and enhance your learning outcomes with additional knowledge, attributes and capabilities.

If you choose to study one of the many Minors available, the Minor must be in a different subject area than your major.  If you are doing a double major and would also like to add a Minor, you may have to complete additional credits depending on relevant major and minor requirements.

An indication of the Minors that can be completed on each Campus and by Distance is provided below.  You will need to confirm the availability of relevant courses when planning your programme of study.
