Minor subjects

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

The minor must be in a different subject area than your major. 

If you are studying a Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Business, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Agribusiness, Bachelor of Information Sciences or Bachelor of Design with Honours degree you may have the opportunity to include a minor subject from a wide range of specialisations.

The Bachelor of Communication also allows minors but only from within the qualification.

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.
