Social science analyses and explains societies and the relationships of individuals within those societies.

This course consists of a compulsory arts major and arts minor, with additional studies.
For the specific requirements of arts majors and minors and information on other arts units refer to the Areas of studyAreas of study (http://www.monash.edu.au/pubs/2014handbooks/aos/index-byfaculty-arts.html) section in this Handbook.
Students must complete the following:
(a.) a compulsory arts major (48 points)
(b.) an arts minor in a different area of study (24 points)
(c.) a first-year arts sequence in a third area of study (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
By combining some of the core arts requirements, students can complete a double major in two different arts disciplines. For more details on this option, contact the Faculty of Arts.
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 the student 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.
