The Single Discipline Major Pathway

A BACBS bachelor degree requires the accumulation of a minimum of 123 academic credits plus 3 training credits. Apart from 30 GUR credits in Table 1, students need to accumulate another 93 credits by completing

  (1) 75 DSR credits plus 3 training credits listed in Table 2, 3 & 4 with at least 21 credits from level-4 subjects, and
  (2) 18 elective credits from any academic departments of the University.

However, students have the freedom to complete all the remaining 18 credits from courses offered within the BACBS programme if they prefer, including subjects listed in Table 4, 5 and 6.

 

The Major and Minor Pathway

A BACBS award with a Major in CBS and a Minor in a chosen area requires the accumulation of a minimum of 123 academic credits plus 3 training credits. Apart from 30 GUR credits in Table 1, students need to accumulate another 93 credits by completing

  (1) 75 DSR credits plus 3 training credits listed in Table 2, 3 & 4 and
  (2) 18 credits by completing six relevant subjects listed in Table 5 (a Japanese Minor) or Table 6 (a Korean Minor) or in any Minor programmes offered by OTHER departments at PolyU. Among the 18 minor credits, at least 9 credits should be from subjects at Level 3 or above. A maximum of 6 credits from GUR courses can be counted toward the Minor with the approval from Minor-offering departments. Under normal circumstances, the GPA of Minor subjects will not factor in the calculation of Major GPA.

Please note that students choosing this option will have to apply for a Minor. If they do not wish to declare a Minor, they should consider taking free electives, thus becoming a Single Discipline Major student (see above section on Single Discipline Major Pathway).
