Undergraduate options

Choosing and planning your qualification

Every undergraduate course, be it a Bachelor of Science (BSc) or a Bachelor of Applied Science (BAppSc), needs to be planned so you can progress from the 100-level to at least two major subjects. This provides you with the flexibility to change your path should you choose to do so.

Different degrees have different requirements, e.g. a BSc requires at least one major subject while a BAppSc requires a major and either a minor or second major. For help with planning an undergraduate course, see the University webpage or email us materials.enquiries@otago.ac.nz.

Clothing and Textile Science - Fibre, yarn, material science, and technology

Clothing and Textile Sciences (CLTE) can be studied as a major for either the BAppSc, BSc and BASc degrees.

The qualification you choose affects the other subjects included in your degree, and, in turn, the character and type of final qualification. Remember to consider your career aspirations and personal interests when planning.

The BAppSc requires candidates include a major plus a minor or second major. These subjects are selected from a variety of disciplines across business, arts, and science. Major and minor subject areas are listed in the BAppSc schedule of approved minor and second majors.

The BSc has no requirement for a second major or minor, however, you may chose to include a second major or minor. For the BSc your choice of second major or minor is constrained to subjects listed in the science schedule of subjects.


Clothing and Textile Sciences as a minor subject

Clothing and Textile Sciences (CLTE) can also be taken as a minor subject for a BA, BPA, BAppSc, BCom, BSc, BASc and BTheol. Clothing, Textiles and the Human Environment (CTHE) and Sports Technology (SPTE) also include Clothing and Textile Sciences papers.
