Applicants are required to have a major in the subject to which they are applying, or a major closely related to it. For example, anthropology majors may focus on Australian Studies. All programs require the completion of lower division requirements in the major, with some upper division highly recommended, due to the competitive nature of the program. Students should consult the websites of the universities for specific courses while keeping in mind that not all coursework is available to visiting students and that prerequisites apply.
