What is a specialisation ?

A specialisation is a group of units that make up a key program, major, sub-major in an undergraduate course or specialisation within a postgraduate course.

  • A key program is made up of 160 credit points or more
  • A major is made up of 80 credit points (normally 8 courses)
  • A sub-major is made up of 40 credit points
  • A postgraduate specialisation is made up of at least 40 credit points

For example if you are enrolled in the Bachelor of Health Science you must select a key program in Health Promotion, Health Services Management or Therapeutic Recreation. You can also select a sub-major in addition to your key program, but this must be in a different discipline area to your key program.
