Ways to structure your course

In Arts, you have the freedom to create a course designed to suit your academic and career interests.

The Bachelor of Arts is a three-year full-time course. It is made up of 24 units. In summary, eight of these make up your major, four make up your minor, another four are arts electives and the remaining eight can be taken from arts or another course such as Business or Science.

Watch the video to see the ways you can structure your course.
