This course consists of a criminal justice major, two compulsory Australian Indigenous studies units and an arts minor, with additional studies.
* Available via off-campus learning only.
Students must complete the following:
(a.) a criminal justice major (48 points)
(b.) an arts minor in one of the disciplines listed under 'Areas of study' (24 points)
(c.) a first-year arts sequence in a third area of study (12 points)
(d.) two compulsory Australian Indigenous studies units (12 points):
(e.) a further 48 points from arts or another faculty.
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 total 144 points required, 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.
When selecting units not for a major or minor, these can be identified using the browse units toolbrowse units tool (http://www.monash.edu.au/pubs/handbooks/units/search) and indexes of unitsindexes of units (http://www.monash.edu.au/pubs/handbooks/units/) in the current edition of the Handbook. The level of the unit is indicated by the first number in the unit code; undergraduate units are those that commence with the numbers 1-3. Note: Some non-arts units may require permission from the owning faculty.
