Course Information

The Bachelor of Arts (Honours) program provides students with an opportunity to significantly expand their knowledge in an academic area of interest in an additional, challenging year of research-orientated study. In contrast to undergraduate studies, honours studies requires students to draw on a high degree of initiative and self-direction and is therefore ideal for students who relish a greater freedom to pursue their academic interest(s). As a result, the Bachelor of Arts (Honours) qualification denotes strong academic performance and affords students a solid and important foundation for pursuing either postgraduate studies at a Master or Doctorate level or a career path in an area that prizes high-level conceptual, analytical, research and communication skills.
