Faculty Requirement Modules

Major Requirement Modules
These modules provide specialised education in a subject and include both ‘essential’ and ‘elective’ modules.
‘Essential’ modules are concerned with the core knowledge and abilities expected of a graduate majoring in the discipline.
‘Elective’ modules combine the flexibility of choice with further specialisation within the discipline.
Major requirements may include relevant modules from other Departments.
Unrestricted Elective Modules
These modules allow students to explore greater breadth or depth in any subject and at any level.
