Honours graduates are often targeted as potential managers and leaders in large corporations.

Students with strong academic results in their undergraduate degree, particularly in the third year, are encouraged to consider enhancing their qualification with the honours program. You will study advanced coursework units, while carrying out a program of research on an agreed topic approved by the faculty in your chosen discipline.
