  • First Additional Language – code 3 (40%).
  • Mathematics – code 5 (60%) (If you will be taking Economics 114 or 144).

OR

  • Mathematics – code 4 (50%) OR Mathematical Literacy – code 6 (70%) (only if you will be taking Socio-Informatics).

Consult section 3 in this chapter for more information on the Extended Degree Programmes.

Programme content

a) The programme structure consists of five first-year subjects, four second-year subjects and two and a half third-year subjects. In all three years of study the    following three core disciplines are compulsory, except for a limited choice in the final year:

  • Geography and Environmental Studies;
  • Sociology/Social Anthropology; and
  • Public and Development Management

b) In the final year you take two and a half subjects out of the three for a total of 120 credits.

c) You do a certain amount of work in each of the major subjects that is designed to enhance the content integration within and between the major subjects and the overall coherence of the programme. This work, that forms part of the process of integrated assessment, can take on various forms such as (interdepartmental) seminars, written assignments, various forms of practical work, etc.

d) Please note the following:

  • If you comply with the admission requirements for Mathematics, you can take Economics 114 and 144 in your first year, and Economics 214 and 244 in your second year. This will give you the economic-related subject support you need in order to understand and deal with developmental realities.
  • If you do not take Economics 114 and 144 in your first year, then you must take Economics 288 (no admission requirements in Mathematics) as a compulsory module in your second year.
  • Note that you can only take Basic Xhosa in your first year

Presentation

The programme is presented by means of formal lectures, tutorials, practicals, group work, individual assignments, self-study and field trips. You are expected to work more independently in your third year. Tuition techniques are monitored constantly and adjusted according to experience.

Students who comply with the admission requirements for Mathematics may take Economics at the basic and intermediary levels. Students not taking Economics 178 at the basic level, must do Economics 288 (no admission requirements in Mathematics) at the intermediate level as the elective module. Economics 178 (basic level) or Economics 288 (intermediate level) is minimum requirements. This meets the requirement for economics related subject support in order to understand and deal with development realities. Note that Basic Xhosa is offered at basic level only.

Notes

Study in a subject at Honours level is permitted only if the subject was a major (minimum 48 credits) for which an average of 60% was attained.

The contributing modules use conventional tertiary assessment techniques, namely tests, exams and written assignments. Skills modules may also be assessed continuously by means of practical applications.

For details about assessment, consult the participating departments. Also consult their entries in Section 6, Module Contents.

All subject combinations are subject to timetable possibilities.

The contributing modules use the conventional tertiary tuition techniques: formal lectures, tutorials, practicals, group work, independent assignments, self-study, and field visits. At the advanced level, especially, more independent work by students is a consciously pursued aim. Tuition techniques are monitored constantly and adjusted according to experience. Consult language specifications for the medium of instruction.
