Minors in the Bachelor of Design Innovation

A minor is an optional additional area of focus for a degree. You can obtain a minor for the BDI in an undergraduate subject area.

A minor is made up of a collection of courses in a particular subject. The workload for a minor is lighter than for a major—fewer courses to do, fewer points required. This makes a minor a good way to build a second or third area of focus or concentration into your degree. Find out more about how minors work.

A candidate may obtain a minor for the Bachelor of Design Innovation in an undergraduate subject area. Candidates with a Design for Social Innovation major may obtain two minors.

Minors are made up of at least 60 points from the relevant subject area at 200 level or above. At least 15 of those points must be at 300 level and not counted towards a major or another minor.

Game Design and Photographics have special requirements and course options as minors. These requirements are outlined in the Bachelor of Design Innovation section of the University Calendar.
