Complementary units towards a Monash Arts major
You must get approval from the undergraduate coordinator to study a complementary unit towards a major or minor. You need to complete a minimum of 18 third-year level credit points towards your major at Monash.
Completing a major or minor
Students who complete 24 or 48 credit points within a single area of study by complementary study can't count this in place of a Monash Arts major or minor. If you wish to complete 48 points of complementary study, you should seek course advice.
How to apply
To apply, you need to seek approval in writing from your managing faculty by completing the complementary study application form. You’ll also need to include written approval from your course coordinator when you submit the application form.
See the complementary study web page for application details and semester closing dates and ensure you complete all necessary steps. Check the deadlines for the host institution, as these will vary from each university.
Summer and winter units
The closing date for:
- winter semester is 31 May
