Notes

  • Students have a maximum of eight years to complete this course.
  • Students may select arts units from any campus, but should be aware of the teaching location as this may require travel to another campus. Students may also select units offered in off-campus mode.

Description

Students selected as deans scholars in arts will be eligible to choose the campus at which they wish to undertake their Bachelor of Arts program. The Deans Scholars Program applies only to the Bachelor of Arts. Specialised degrees, double degrees or double awards are not included in the program.

Participants in this program receive a scholarship which is renewable for each year of the course, subject to satisfactory academic performance (normally a distinction grade average).

Objectives

The faculty offers students in the deans scholars in arts the opportunity to plan, in consultation with an adviser, personalised courses that differ in academic merit and scope from the normal Bachelor of Arts degree program.

Course progression requirements

The performance of deans scholars in arts will be evaluated at the end of each year. Students are expected to continue achieving at the same high level at which they entered the program (normally distinction level). Students who are unable to maintain the required level of performance in each year may forfeit their Deans Scholars Award.

Structure

This course consists of a compulsory arts major and arts minor, with additional studies chosen from a variety of arts disciplines.

Areas of study

For information on majors and minors, refer to the 'Areas of study' section in this Handbook at http://www.monash.edu.au/pubs/handbooks/aos/index-ug-byfaculty-arts.html.

Requirements

Students complete:

(a.) an arts major (48 points)

(b.) an arts minor (24 points)

(c.) another first-year arts sequence (12 points)

(d.) another 12 points of arts at first, second or third-year level

(e.) additional units to make up a total of 144 points.

No more than 10 units (60 points) are to be completed at a first-year level.

Students must complete a minimum of 36 points at third-year level (across the duration of the degree).

Of the 144 points, 96 points must be in the structure outlined in steps (a.) to (d), and the remaining 48 points may be taken from disciplines in the Faculty of Arts or from disciplines outside the faculty. This means students can study a second major from the Arts faculty*, or a major (equivalent) from another faculty. A major from a faculty other than Arts usually requires the permission of that faculty.

* Including psychology units.
