Major: An area within a program that allows in-depth study in a particular field. A major usually consists of a set number of related courses.
Majors at ANU require 48 units.

Minor: A minor has fewer requirements to fulfil than a major, in terms of units and compulsory courses. Minors at ANU require 24 units.

Specialisation: Similar to minors, specialisations are areas of study with their own courses that can be taken in conjunction with a specific related major.

Elective: An optional area of study selected in addition to the core courses of the program. Electives may allow you to delve more deeply into an area of
study, or focus on an alternative area of interest. Many students use electives to complete an additional major or minor.

   These study plans are a suggestion on how these programs can be structured. The University holds
   Academic Advice Sessions during Orientation Week for new students. From there, students can meet
   with their College's Student Office to formalise a study plan.
