Notes

These subjects are not approved as breadth for Bachelor of Commerce students. The track cannot be taken by Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Biomedicine or Bachelor of Engineering students as ECON10005 is not available in the breadth or core components of those degrees.

What is a Breadth Track?

A breadth track is a sequence of three or more subjects (taken as part of a Melbourne Bachelor degree) that progressively develops knowledge and skills relevant to a coherent domain, theme, topic or issue. It is a suggested set of subjects, rather than a requirement.
