Bachelor of Arts (Advanced) (Honours)

Three years full-time / Six years part-time

The Bachelor of Arts (Advanced) (Honours) is designed to challenge our highest-achieving students. By allowing you to accelerate into a senior Arts program, you can complete an honours degree in just three years. Our degree fosters high-level disciplinary and interdisciplinary research and methodology skills.

As an Advanced Honours degree student, you belong to a small group within the much larger Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences program. By sharing knowledge about a range of issues that can confront students who are in an accelerated program, our degree director and faculty staff aim to nurture an inclusive identity, academically and socially, which we hope will enhance your learning experience at our University.

The annual minimum academic standard we require for you to be able to remain in this degree is a credit average (65 per cent). Because of the acceleration process, you may experience some limitations on your subject choice for your major, and for the choice of subjects in your honours degree. However, you will work individually with the degree director who will help you tailor a program that is right for you and which adheres to the requirements of your degree.

Please note: The Bachelor of Arts (Advanced) (Honours) is not available from semester 1, 2014.
