Arts and Social Sciences


The specialisation in Arts and Social Sciences (A&SS) allows you to develop a 24 unit of credit sequence of study to meet your individual professional, disciplinary or interdisciplinary development. You must put forward a case for doing a UNSW Arts and Social Sciences minor stream that will enhance your BA program. The content of the minor stream must be approved by the BA Convenor and must provide a coherent program of study. Courses are drawn from the BA Program. For example, a student doing Film Studies may want to focus on ethics in Australian film so may select courses from Australian Studies and Philosophy.

Please refer to below table for all relevant programs and plans.
