Hello...I've just accepted my offer for BCA...and majoring in Music.
Anyone else is also going crazy
from trying figure out what units to put into their timetable?
What electives are you choosing...besides the prescribed units?
I was thinking of first sem
....something else...??? might have to change MKTG around as its offered in both sems...
According to the 2009 physical handbook, you need entrance to certain degrees (of which the BCA is one) in addition to 12 cp to do BBA250. Additionally, unless you've had some serious business study in the past, I suggest you save it for second year - even third. I'd done ARTS105, BBA111 and MKTG101 prior to BBA250 and I still barely had any idea what was going on (of the three, BBA111 was the closest in content and 'environment'). BBA250 and MKTG101 are the two core BCA units where you will be mixing with real
business students - Marketing is all very fun, but Human Resource Management was still a killer for many people I know who did it in second year.
The BCA degree has changed a lot since I started - we had to do a lot of prerequisite CUL and SOC units. I wasn't a huge fan of CUL100, but enjoyed CUL207, SOC180, and SOC289. You can also do ARTS200/SOC231 in your second semester, as the only prerequisite is ARTS100 (which you are already doing in Sem 1). I personally found it easier after having studied SOC180, but had a friend who jumped into it in her first year.
In my experience, the BCA degree is a really good one for 'dabbling'. Music is probably the only stream in which you have the opportunity to 'only' do your major - in most of the other ones you need to find other things to fill up your electives. Some of the creative writing units are fun - maybe consider picking up a language, ISYS123, african drumming...
