The Bachelor of Commerce
exposes students to a wide variety of business disciplines. Students usually choose their major at the beginning of the second year of study,
giving them an opportunity to explore a range of disciplines before having to choose a major. Students intending to major in accounting and actuarial studies will need to choose the required subjects from their first year.
What is a major?
A major refers to following a sequence of subjects in a particular discipline from an introductory level through to an advanced level. To complete a major in the core, a student must complete three specified level-three subjects (these are usually subjects that a student would study in their third and final year of the degree). Level-three subjects require a student to have completed the relevant level-one and level-two (i.e. first and second year) subjects.
Students must complete at least one major from the core program. The following majors are available:
- Actuarial Studies
Major in Business
Students who prefer to take subjects from more than one field of study can do so by completing a business major. A business major consists of six level-3 subjects from three or more fields of study within the core program.
It is possible to complete a double major in the Bachelor of Commerce. Students are able to combine:
- accounting (including full accreditation) with finance OR management OR marketing
- finance with accounting (including full accreditation) OR economics OR management OR marketing
- economics with finance OR management OR marketing
- management with accounting (including full accreditation) OR economics OR finance OR marketing
- marketing with accounting (including full accreditation) OR economics OR finance OR management.
Actuarial studies cannot be combined with any other major.
A double major requires the completion of six level-3 subjects, i.e. third year subjects, in two disciplines (three subjects per discipline).
Completing two majors may preclude students from being eligible for honours in either discipline. Students are advised to obtain course advice and plan their subjects carefully in order to keep their options open for honours.
