This course provides students with the opportunity to combine studies in a very wide range of science and arts disciplines, together with international studies. Part of these studies are taken overseas at a Monash off-shore campus or at another partner exchange institution.
Refer to the two single degree entries at http://www.monash.edu.au/pubs/2013handbooks/courses/0050.html and http://www.monash.edu.au/pubs/2013handbooks/courses/3910.html.
Students need to be aware that there will be personal financial costs associated with the compulsory overseas study component of this course. Grants may be available but are not guaranteed. Contact Monash Abroad for details at http://www.monash.edu.au/students/studyabroad.
This course consists of minor and major sequences in different areas of study in both arts and science.
Students in this course cannot take units from faculties other than the Faculty of Arts and Faculty of Science.
Students must complete:
(1.) 96 points of arts units including:
(a.) one core units (6 points) in global studies:
(b.) an international studies major of eight units (48 points)
(c.) an arts minor sequence in a different area of study (24 points)
(d.) a level one arts sequence in a third area of study (12 points)
(e.) one arts elective (6 points)
(f.) a minimum of one and a maximum of three semester(s) abroad at another Monash campus or designated overseas university (ie exchange partner)
The Faculty of Arts requires arts studies to be chosen from the arts disciplines outlined at http://www.monash.edu.au/pubs/2013handbooks/aos/index-byfaculty-arts.html.
Within the arts component a maximum of six level one arts units (36 points) overall can be taken. In addition, a minimum of three level three arts units must be taken in the arts major sequence (18 points).
Students must complete:
(2.) 96 points of science units including:
(a.) a major sequence in a science area of study (48 points)
(b.) a minor sequence in a different science area of study (24 points)
(c.) at least one mathematics or statistics unit from the following:
(d.) the following core unit:
(e.) science electives to complete a total of 96 points of science studies
The Faculty of Science requires science studies to be chosen from the science units listed in the section 'Science areas of study and sequences' in this handbook available via http://www.monash.edu.au/pubs/2013handbooks/undergrad/sci-aos-clayton.html.
Within the science component students must complete a minimum of four level three science units (24 points), and a maximum of six level-one science units (36 points) can be taken overall.
The level one mathematics/statistics unit taken will depend on the mathematics background and interests as follows:
Students must complete at least five level one sequences - at least two from the Faculty of Science and three from the Faculty of Arts. These five level one sequences must be in different areas of study. Only four sequences will be taken in the first year of study.
Students must complete the level one mathematics/statistics requirement if not already completed at stage one, and the core unit SCI2010.
All remaining units will be completed at stages three and four.
Students may apply for admission to an honours program in science, following the completion of an approved combination of at least 144 points of units including all of the science requirements for the double degree course. Students who are considering doing honours in science prior to completing the double degree should consult with the Faculty of Science regarding their unit selection prior to re-enrolling for level three.
Students may be eligible to exit the double degree program and graduate with either a Bachelor of Arts (Global) or a Bachelor of Science after three years, depending on the units studied.
Students who wish to graduate with a Bachelor of Science prior to the completion of the double degree course must have completed at least 144 points of units, including all of the science requirements for the double degree course. Students who wish to graduate with a Bachelor of Arts (Global) prior to the completion of the double degree course must have completed at least 144 points of units, including all of the arts requirements for the double degree course.
Bachelor of Arts (Global)
Bachelor of Science
