What is a change of major?

Question:

What is a change of major?

Answer:

A major is a structured sequence of units in a particular discipline or subject area, which has been approved by Macquarie University. If you are an undergraduate student, you can change your major if:

 

    •            Your course has a qualifying major as part of its degree requirements
    •            The major you wish to change to is either (a) offered for your current course or (b) offered in the same curriculum (year) that you are currently following

 

 Due to the structure of majors, you can only have one major on your eStudent study plan. It is strongly recommended that all students looking to change their major seek academic advice prior to submitting a change of major request.
