Double degree options

Dual Mode with Bachelor of Social Research & Policy - General Education Requirement

Because both Dual programs are internal to UNSW Arts and Social Sciences the General Education (GE) Exemption for Dual programs does not apply.

For students completing the BSW (Hons) in this Dual mode the Social Research & Policy Prescribed Elective is replaced with an approved GE course to meet 6 UOC of the GE requirement. The other 6 UOC is to be taken by replacing ARTS1870 Rethinking the Social with an approved GE course. This completes the 12 UOC GE requirement.
