Major sequences and Minor sequences

A major or minor sequence is a group of units in a particular area of study taken over the three levels of your course. Each unit is usually worth 1 credit point.

A major sequence is made up of 8 credit points, and a minor sequence is made of 4 credit points.

Please check the rules of each major and minor sequence to see which units you need to complete to achieve the required credit points.

Students enrolled in other courses and faculties may take an Arts major sequence (8 credit points), minor sequence (4 credit points) or individual electives from these discipline areas, subject to meeting the prerequisites.

All students who intend to complete more than one major sequence in the Creative Arts (Dance, Drama, Photography, Visual Arts) should contact Student Central to complete a course map.
