Modules

A Module is an optional grouping of three courses (45 points) on a particular theme which enables you to add value to your Bachelor of Arts.

Modules are a new feature of the Bachelor of Arts from 2018. A Module is a grouping of three courses (45 points) on a particular theme which enables you to add value to your degree.

Modules are optional. If you wish to, you may take one or two modules in addition to your two majors within the overall structure of the BA. Modules are designed to complement the skills you will develop through your other studies. The skills you can expect to gain through BA study are outlined in our Graduate Profile.

By taking a module you can focus the study outside your majors on a specific, skills-based area. This will enable you to add to your skill set for future employment, develop skills that you can use in the workplace, stand out from other graduates and enhance your career prospects.

The content and skills offered by modules may help inform or benefit future potential career paths. As Modules are formally acknowledged on your academic record, you will be able to demonstrate your ability in a specific set of skills or areas of knowledge outside your majors.
