Recognising worldwide trends and the restructuring of the South African educational system towards a more ‘outcome-based’ approach, UKZN has taken a leading role in curriculum development. Many of the challenges you will face in your future professional life cannot be solved by a single discipline. The new curricula are arranged into modules which will give you more flexibility in the composition of your degree package. This will also give you the freedom to interrupt and resume your studies, depending on your financial circumstances. UKZN has redesigned its curricula to include large elements of inter-disciplinary work. In this way, you will be exposed to a wider range of disciplines, thus widening your choice of career options, and enhancing your understanding of the society in which you will live and work.
