We have recently completed a review of the Bachelor of Arts (BA) and the Bachelor of Social Science (BSocSc) and have made some changes to these programs which impact the BA/BSocSc dual for students commencing in Semester 1, 2021.

Some of the changes were made to standardise aspects of UQ undergraduate programs, including the unit-value of Majors. 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 or 2020 BSocSc course lists 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/BSocSc with the pre-2021 program.

The changes that have been made to this program will affect students commencing in Semester 1, 2021

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

We are here to provide you with some further detail to guide your enrolment decisions and to help you plan your enrolment for 2021.

Please read the information below carefully and consider the option that is best for you. If you decide you would like to change to the 2021 program for Semester 1, 2021, you will need to submit a program change request in your mySI-net account by 12 February 2021 (program change requests open 4 December 2020).

8. I still have questions. Who can I talk to?

If you have any questions about the information you have read, including how to apply to change to the 2021 program, you can talk to a Student Administration team member in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences (HASS).
