  7. Why the change? • BA review early 2012 • Recommendations of the review aim to: • Enhance academic coherence of degree • Allow for fewer but more multi-disciplinary majors • Allow students to adopt a progression model that best suits their needs • Make clear links between learning outcomes of the majors, the course and the Monash graduate attributes

  9. The changes explained • Three compulsory categories to be completed in a major • Chosen key units • Key units taught in Sem 1 and Sem 2 for mid-year entrants • Extended major option • One major (8 units); one minor (4 units); Arts electives (4 units); Open electives (8 units). • The 1st year Arts sequence has been removed

  10. The categories explained • Gateway unit – 1st year foundation unit • Cornerstone unit – 2nd year unit allowing you to demonstrate a solid grasp of your study area • Capstone unit – 3rd year unit allowing you to demonstrate advanced knowledge of your major. Research project or internship.
