Majors, Minors and Electives

The purpose of this page is to help you choose courses within your program. It outlines the majors, minors and electives that are available within UniSA Business. Please note that a major consists of eight related courses and a minor of four related courses. 


For electives, you may take any business courses available as long as you satisfy the prerequisites. It is important to note that it is your responsibility to CHECK and complete prerequisites when planning your program of study. Prerequisites are shown on the course pages linked in the lists of electives.
By choosing appropriate courses for your electives, you can study one or two minors, or an additional major, depending on the number of electives available in your program. Please note that minors or additional majors will not appear on the parchment you receive at graduation, but they can be used to show prospective employers your areas of knowledge.
Recommended electives for individual programs can be found on your program's website, which you can access by clicking the program link in the my Academic Record section of your student portal, myUniSA. Alternatively, you can contact the Business Student Hub for assistance.
