We have recently completed a review of the Bachelor of Arts and have made some changes to this program for students commencing in Semester 1, 2021

Some of the changes were made to standardise aspects of UQ undergraduate programs, including minimum requirements for the study of Level 3 courses. Other changes were made to ensure that we have a sustainable suite of program, plan and course offerings.

When viewing the 2020 BA course list on the Programs and Courses website, you can change which year you are viewing using the dropdown box near the top right of the list to compare the 2021 BA with the pre-2021 program.

As a continuing student, your choice of plans (Minors, Majors, Extended Majors) will determine to what extent you are affected by these changes, but please be assured that if you remain in your pre-2021 single or dual degree program you will be able to complete the combination of plans you have commenced.

We are here to help you plan your enrolment for 2021. 

3. My plan course list has changed, what do I do?

Where there are changes to the course list for plans that were in the pre-2021 program and remain in the new 2021 program, you can choose courses from the old or the new course list but you must ensure you are completing the required compulsory courses and sufficient Level 2 and Level 3 courses.

Please refer to discontinued courses and their replacements

Psychology Extended Major:  Continuing students who started the pre-2021 28 unit Extended Major are permitted to complete the 2021 24 unit Extended Major if they wish.  Students commencing a BA dual program in 2021 (or changing from the single BA into a BA dual program) will be required to follow the new program structure, rules and course list (i.e. the 24 unit Extended Major).  

Completion information for plans which have had complex change is available below:
