A.General Degrees: Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Social Science:
A General Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Social Science degree offers a flexible degree structure which is spread over a minimum of three years of full-time study. The General Degree requires students to study at least two approved majors (i.e. a specialised study taken to third year level), selected from a wide choice of subjects. While major subjects require specific courses to be taken, with some choice within certain majors, outside the majors students have the freedom to choose from a wide range of courses. The degree structure is also adaptable, in that students may change majors as they go along, based on their experience of their courses.
General Degrees are suitable for students with a general interest in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, who wish to construct their own course of study rather than being committed to a prescribed set curriculum.
Students enrolling for a degree programme will take at least 20 semester courses; of these eight to ten semester courses will form part of two majors selected from the lists below.

  • Students who select both majors from the list of Bachelor of Arts majors will register for a Bachelor of Arts degree.
  • Students who select both majors from the list of Bachelor of Social Science majors will register for a Bachelor of Social Science degree.
  • Students who select one major from each list will choose to register for either a Bachelor of Arts degree or a Bachelor of Social Science degree.
  • Students can also choose one major from the list of majors offered by departments outside the Faculty but must also take a major in either the Arts or Social Sciences.
