The outcomes which are common and consolidated in this joint degree ensure that on successful completion of the course students will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate sound discipline knowledge;
  2. Critically and reflectively evaluate ideas, concepts and processes;
  3. Apply relevant knowledge and technical skills to produce a disciplinary work;
  4. Communicate effectively to a range of audiences.

Course Structure

To qualify for the award of the Bachelor of Creative Arts - Bachelor of Science, students must complete a minimum of 216 credit points (cp) comprised of the following:

  1. The core subjects prescribed for the Bachelor of Creative Arts;
  2. One of the majors listed for the Bachelor of Creative Arts;
  3. A flexible major in the Bachelor of Science as prescribed by that Faculty;
  4. Elective subjects to bring the total number of credit points completed to 216.

Students must consult academic advisors in the relevant faculties concerning the selection of appropriate subjects.

Note: No more than 90 credit points at 100 level can be counted and students must achieve a clear pass in the core 300 level subjects. 


Students can take Minors as part of their degree program provided they meet the requirements set. Minor studies consist of a minimum of 24 credit points of which at least 12 credit points are completed at 200-level or higher. 

Minors appear on the transcript (academic record), but do not appear on the testamur. To have a minor study recorded, students must declare their minor study by submitting an Application to Declare or Change Intended Major/Minor.


Honours is an additional year of study that provides training in independent research. Students who complete the double degree with the required academic standard in the relevant major are encouraged to proceed to the Honours degree in either Bachelor of Creative Arts (Honours) or Bachelor of Science (Honours).
