Bachelor of Journalism students may take Combined Honours programs in which Journalism is combined with another discipline. Students may choose a Combined Honours program in Journalism and Communication and Media Studies, or from Combined Honours programs offered within the B.A. The Journalism requirements for the Combined Honours program are normally the same as those for the Bachelor of Journalism with Honours listed above. The requirements of the other discipline are the same as those listed for the B.A. Combined Honours program in that discipline. Students are advised to consult the Combined Honours entry of their second discipline in this calendar for details. Combined Honours programs in Journalism and other disciplines are available only to students registered in Journalism.
