Course changes in 2021

As part of UQ's Student Strategy, we have been reviewing HASS programs, plans (minors, majors, extended majors) and courses to ensure ongoing delivery of quality programs.   

As part of this review we wish to advise you of some BA courses that are being offered for the final time in semester 2.  These discontinued courses and their relevant plans are listed below, along with new courses offered for the first time in 2021.

Please be assured that the changes we are making to some of our course offerings will not affect your ability to complete your declared plans, as alternative courses will be available in 2021.  Some of the courses being offered for the last time in semester 2 2020 will be offered in 2021 at a different level (eg. as a 3000-level course rather than as a 2000-level course) and some will be combined with another course into a new course offering.

What you need to do:

  • If you would like to complete any of the courses listed in the second table below in their current format, and you have room to enrol in them as part of your schedule for semester 2, please feel free to do so.
  • If you have already taken, or do not wish to undertake any of the courses listed in the second table below in semester 2, no action is required.
