A minor in the Bachelor of Environments is a sequence of subjects that offers a secondary area of study in a particular field. Minor sequences are undertaken as electives, with breadth spaces in the Study Plan used as required.

A minor in the Bachelor of Environments consists of 50 points (four subjects) at second and third year. Students intending to complete a minor will be required to complete appropriate first year level subjects for their minor prior to commencing second year subjects.

Bachelor of Environments students must complete a major. The completion of a minor is optional and is undertaken in addition to, and not in place of, a major.

Minors are not formally reflected in student’s study plans, and will not appear on student transcripts.

All Bachelor of Environments students (regardless of commencing year) are eligible to complete a minor. Subjects that were completed prior to the introduction of minors may contribute towards a minor.

How to complete a minor

To complete a minor, a student must complete the required subjects for their chosen minor as they are stipulated on this website. Subjects that form a minor are undertaken as electives, with breadth spaces used if  required.

Prerequisites may need to be completed in order to enrol in certain subjects within a minor. Students must course plan carefully to ensure that they meet any prerequisites of subjects in their chosen minor.
